Can anyone provide firm evidence regarding whether guile-dbi is now
maintained or unmaintained?

If it is unmaintained, I guess we could consider merging it into the
core Guile distribution.  Any thoughts on that?

Also, can anyone provide a summary of all the DB-related libraries for
Guile?  I believe there's guile-pg, and guile-sqlite, but (i) there
could be others I've forgotten, and (ii) it would be great if someone
could summarize how they differ / overlap / compare with each other.

Cool, thanks.  If it turns out to make sense to pull guile-dbi into
core Guile, I guess we'll review and incorporate these patches at that
