I'm just curious. (these are serious questions) 

Do you intend to talk SQL over the cell network or wifi?

Aren't you not allowed to open source libraries on iphone unless the come
with the sdk?

So ios is at least somewhat posix-ish enough run libraries like freetds?

Is fopen() a function you can normal use?
