But wait, there's more!

ScheneQL in CVS under the MikesSurgery tag is apparently
much nicer and shinier.

David Neu (IIRC) has a Postgres binding

There is various half-working stuff in Schematics (for
Firebird, MySQL, and Postgres)

Francisco is/was working on a low-level DB SRFI.

Compatability with 299 unknown for all the above.

Let me know what direction you decide to go in.
