	I hoped Fridrich would get back to you; but I suspect him of taking a
well-deserved vacation :-)

	Of course ! no point in re-writing OCommonStatement etc. we should
re-use that as much as possible.

	IIRC, there is no real need to handle all the highly-complicated
SQL-ness that is possible here. I would look at something like:

	connectivity/source/drivers/file/FStatement.cxx /::construct/

	To see how the simple file case is handled - not much point in trying
to do better than that if this is only used for mail-merge IMHO :-)

	Thanks !
