Quid pro quo eh? It is a bit hard to say if I'm interested in 'folding
SQL::DB' into a shared project without knowing anything about what the
shared project would be.

As I said in the beginning, I wrote / am writing SQL::DB to satisfy my
own goals, not the wider community's. Of course there is probably a
certain degree of overlap (hence the GPL license and public announcement)
and if what I've written is worth something then great, of course I
see the benefits over an individual doing his own thing.

However if the community's goals are too different, or if the direction
diverges far from where I would like things to go, then, as is natural,
my interest would be less strong. On a more a practical level I've become
quite fond of Cogito/git... and would kind of hate to have to give that
up :-/

Make some concrete suggestions.
