I think it makes total sense! One of the reasons I created this new
project is because my changes have broken a few features and I didn't
know that this would fit the requirements of YXA. In addition, it was
ok for ErlyDB's needs if the driver went back to "beta" version, but
it probably wouldn't be ok for a mature product like YXA. Anyway, if
you would like to roll these changes into the YXA source repository, I
would support it.

Let me know.
