You can do this, you just need to give odb::nullable<unsigned char>
a name:

typedef odb::nullable<unsigned char> variable_layer_type;
#pragma db member(variable_layer) virtual(variable_layer_type) ...

It is an annoying limitation (and I've added an item to our TODO list)
but fairly hard to resolve, technically.
