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.
