Bug#752696: ITP: soci -- C++ database access library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Tobias Frost <tobi@coldtobi.de>

* Package name    : soci
  Version         : 3.2.2
  Upstream Author : see http://soci.sourceforge.net/people.html
* URL             : http://soci.sourceforge.net/
* License         : Boost Software License 1.0
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : C++ database access library

SOCI is a database access library for C++ that makes the illusion of embedding
SQL queries in the regular C++ code, staying entirely within the Standard C++.

The idea is to provide C++ programmers a way to access SQL databases in the
most natural and intuitive way. If you find existing libraries too difficult
for your needs or just distracting, SOCI can be a good alternative.

The package soci has been previously removed from Debian (#520746) due to
RoQA; dead upstream, orphaned. However, upstream came back to life and as I am
planning to use soci for solarpowerlog, I'd like to reintroduce it to Debian.
