Hi Hans,

thanks for the info.  If you are wondering about feasibility, I have seen
API in other languages (e.g. perl DBI, or ADO.NET) providing column names
for major databases, so I would imagine that it is feasible (when there are
man power to put behind it of course ;P).

http://search.cpan.org/~timb/DBI/DBI.pm#fetchrow_hashref - Perl DBI fetching
a row as a hash containing name/value pairs

ADO.NET retrieving the name of the field for the recordset from ordinal
