Yes, that's how it should work - as a superset. There are new format  
strings that we would support, apart from already supported ones,  
which were %s and %d (only in PostgreSQL ATM). The %s and %d would  
remain with the same meaning and anything that isn't specifically  
defined would still be interpreted as %s (i.e. VARCHAR), just like it  
is now (although, I find that to be a bad idea - we should stick to  
explicit meanings).

The parsing would get moved out of the drivers, so that we can rely on  
it being identical for all drivers. Which would make things a bit more
