release notes:

  doc and methodology improvements.

  i think it would be nice to start talking about snarfing (or adapting)
  ideas from the various "scheme query language" implementations out
  there.  there is already "compile outspec", all we are missing is
  "compile where-clause" and then a way to join these pieces together.

README excerpt:

  Guile-PG is a collection of modules for Guile allowing access to
  the PostgreSQL RDBMS from Scheme programs.

  The low-level module `(database postgres)' provides an almost
  one-to-one correspondence with the PostgreSQL "libpq" C library
  interface.  Other higher-level modules, typically named
  `(database postgres-FOO)', provide abstractions and convenience

  This is alpha code (pre 1.0 release).  It has bugs, and the
  interfaces may change from version to version.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.23 | 2004-11-21

    - Print representations of smobs now documented

        Specifically, #<PG-CONN...>, #<PG-RESULT...> and
        #<PG-LO-PORT...> fields are now described.

    - Change to database connection print representation

        Previously, for connections without host/port info (for example,
        unix-domain connections), Guile-PG would display "localhost" and
        the default port, anyway.  Now, those fields are empty.

        Before: #<PG-CONN:1:ttn:localhost:5432:>
        Now:    #<PG-CONN:1:ttn:::>

    - More verbosity for "make check DEBUG=1"

        The database drop and create commands that surround some of the
        tests now honor DEBUG=1, not sending their output to /dev/null
        in that case.  Also, the README file explains uid preparations
        required for "make check".
