Yes, thanks. But the emphasis was on Solaris. I don't quite understand
what is the common way to access databases on Solaris. Is it odbc? And
how Haskell libraries connect to that? I mean, Takusen is designed to
use odbc and nothing else (afaik), for example.

Maybe somebody has a successful exprerience of that?
