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.
