This is probably where the pain is! I'm making a call to C for the 
database connection, which
will probably block the mzscheme threading system! I'll probably want to 
make the database
call asynchronous and wait on a semaphore in mzscheme for the database 
to return with a
result ( I'll need to change sqli :(( ).

Please have a look at my previous post.
