The ODBC functions are implemented as a forward-only snapshot. Random
access to database records is not available. And copying into an array
is not a viable option except for very small databases because of the
tremendous amount of disk thrashing involved. My take is that a new
ODBC connection is opened and closed for each record retrieval.

Yes, it's been BZed.
