I still don't understand why we can not put a per-connection tds_ctx
every individual DBPROCESS structure? I am no where near as familiar
with the
internals of TDS as you are so is there some reason why you do not want
do this?

Bill, Brian, can you address this?  

I think the answer is, "because all db-lib operations effectly take
place in a single global context".  But must they?
