> I just reviewed the Takusen code and, for no apparent reason, the ODBC module specifies unsafe for all of its FFI imports, but the other modules do not (so they get the default, which I assume is safe). I also was not aware of unsafe calls blocking other threads. I'll change the ODBC imports to be safe (or rather, unspecified).

Makes sense.  I will make the similar change in all HDBC backends.
