And excellent point, which I'll make sure to add to the Readme.
I'm including the PostgreSQL example DB in the package's docs, so that
should work all OK.

I've been splitting out ODBC support locally since the very beginning,
but everytime I mooted it, Wichert Akkerman (amongst others, but he was
at the time gatekeeper to the debian/ dir in CVS, if you're wondering
why I keep invoking him) disagreed on the grounds of archive bloat,
since rlm_sql_iodbc only pulls in the one package (libiodbc2).

I also promised that I would address _that_ once it was in the archive.

My personal inclination is to micro-packages, but I _like_ installing
packages. :-)

(I have a strange sense that my TODO list is starting to grow to match
my available time... :-)
