The vector element is a composite (multi-column) value type. You
need to declare such a type with the db value pragma so that the
ODB compiler can generate the database support code for it.

ODB allows you to "create" a composite value type out of a class
template instantiations (e.g., std::tuple). Here is an example:

typedef std::tuple<std::string, 
                   unsigned long long,
                   unsigned long long> ban_type;

#pragma db value(ban_type)

#pragma db object
class object

  typedef std::vector<ban_type> bans_type;
  bans_type bans;
