OpenDBX database abstraction layer and C library

OpenDBX is an extremely lightweight but extensible C library for accessing databases with a single API. It provides a clean and simple interface across all supported databases that leads to an elegant code design automatically. Currently, Firebird/Interbase, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and SQL Server (MS and Sybase) are supported, and backends for more native database APIs can be written easily.
