Jamie, after thinking about this, I don't think we should worry about the
specifics of the characters that we use, as long as we can agree on what
gets entered into a PD message box, the specific instance of the external
('sqlite', 'psql', etc.) can handle the conversion to what the specific
database uses.

NOT have an identifier following it? I think it would be very helpful if we
use identifiers in the SQL if only to make the binding to the proper
datatypes easier, as per my last email.

Peace may sound simple—one beautiful word— but it requires everything we
have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.
