Hi Boris,

Thanks for the quick reply! I tested the tarball you linked to, seems to
work fine :)

Also, another appreciation I have for ODB is that the manual at
http://codesynthesis.com/products/odb/doc/manual.xhtml is very good, we
couldn't use other C++ ORMs because their docs were very confusing. Plus
there is support for Qt/sqlite which just works (TM).
