Historically Peter created the ODBCProverties interface to allow for
simpler setup lib creation, its a easy job to create a lib using this
method, Look at the Postgres some for a example.
But, the standard way of doing this, involves the driver managing its
own dialog. I added this as a option, if the lib supports it. So the
code, will try and call the SQLConfig interface, if found, else it will
try the Properties. We (Easysoft) have the SQLConfig in some of our
drivers, and I think Peter has added it to MyODBC, the ones in the setup
dir are examples of using the Properties interface.
