Module Name: metakitBrowse
Description: Plug in for PythonCard application dbBrowse to provide MetaKit 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.

To Do;
  Because metakit isn't a relational database we probably don't need to support the getQueryString method in this class. Its only really an internal utility method for the other, public, classes anyway.
