All of your concerns are certainly valid, and I wasn't trying to suggest 
that an implementation for odb would be trivial.  Supporting only MySQL 
for my purposes alone was far from trivial, and it's far from being a 
finished product, although it does everything I need it to do at the 
moment.  Data types could be based on a standard set, and customized 
with a map file.  Naming conventions are always a point of contention, 
and there is obviously no one-size-fits-all answer.  I'd love to have an 
in-depth discussion about this, and start working on something tangible 
that would be of benefit to the odb community.  Perhaps that would be a 
subject for a new thread of discussion on this list.
