You don't know how happy I am to hear you say that.  I tripped on that in
dealing with TDSCOLINFO stuff in bcp.c.

I hope to commit compilable, minimally working code this weekend, so we can
synch up.  I think it's important to keep you informed of data structure and
header changes.  I don't expect my other changes (e.g. in bcp.c) to matter
very much to you; I'm trying to make them transparent.  

It's 90% done, so there's only 90% more to go, you know.  

"minimally working" means unit tests work for ASCII and UTF-8 clients
against a TDS 7.0 server.  Beyond that lies finding corner cases, which you
might as well be a part of. :-)  Further down the road is UCS-2 clients
and/or UTF-8 servers, but these are both generalization problems.  The data
structures we have now should (famous last words...) suffice.
