ODBCKit projects. It is a merging of code from 3 different projects. The ideas
that came together from several project form the basis of the enQuery project.
ODBCKit and PGSQLKit both started as means to an end that became project in their
own rights. The enQuery project takes those ideas and builds on them. Starting

is supported on the Mac platform. Eventually, these will be expanded to other
data engines, like Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLLite and potentially others.
