Module Name: gadflyBrowse
Description: Plug in for PythonCard application dbBrowse to provide Gadfly specific functionality

Constant/configuration values are currently maintained in the source code. If we are to optimise this application they should be split into seperate configuration files (as per PythonCard/Webware style guidelines)

The structure of this module should be replicated for different RDBMS so that they can be interchanged by dbBrowse - hopefully.

import gadfly

class browse:
    # Connection should be a dictionary with at least two keys, 
    # 'databasename' and 'directory'
    # This is wildly different to other database modules

        # either will do but I think this is more concise (unlike this comment)

        # When we upgrade to 2.2 this will be a great candidate for a

        # track of what we are doing
