Not to detract from your achievement, but doing so to satisfy
requirements of a single application (or even a single company)
is a lot easier than to create a general-purpose implementation.
For starters, you only need to support MySQL while we have 5
databases. You also probably have a fixed set of data types
that you map to while we will have to make it customizable (Qt
types, Boost types, etc). Then there is the naming convention
that should be used in the generated code. Etc. etc.
