I did an ODBC-wrapper in Command1.0 times and from time to time I am still
using it with /View or Command2.0, as it is more flexible than the native
But I think it has a few memory flaws and is not made according Rebol/port
I have a tcp/ip connection to the Cache ODBC&JDBC-server port too.
If anyone wants to clean them up...
