Well Yes and No, but probably more Yes :-), I've done quite a lot of jni
work,and the predecessors rni/jri) calling native driver for smartcards. It
ain't that bad, and it does have the advantage of the C side pushing simply
into the existing C sql calling interface (lots of the current intersever could
also be stripped to go into that).

But I agree on focussing on type 4 driver, that's the one everyone wants, we
just need to leave a placemarker for the type 2 driver to slot in.
