I understand your point; I was tempted too to use the IBPP wrapper, but
after spending some time looking at the C API I've got the idea that
it's not so complex. As someone commented already in the mailing list,
the SDBC drivers is already a wrapper, so adding a new on top of that,
if not necessary, adding a new dependency looks like not the bets
approach. However, I agree that IBPP is quite simple and stable, so I
wouldn't discard it definitively.

Anyway, if you ned some help or advice on using the C api, just png me
at the irc (lajava). The documentation of the C appi is quite good, with
lots of C examples.
