I glanced at Oleg's code last night.  It appears to build a list out of
an entire result set.  That's OK for small databases, but a killer for
anything substantial.  Oleg has a disclaimer about the limitations of
his approach.  Correct me if I'm wrong ...

SchemeQL fetches data lazily, which is what's needed when dealing with
large datasets.
