Summary: Review Request: perl-DBD-AnyData : DBI access to XML, CSV and other formats

- I like long descriptions.  Some or all of:

The DBD::AnyData module provides a DBI/SQL interface to data in many
formats and from many sources.

Currently supported formats include general format flatfiles (CSV, Fixed
Length, Tab or Pipe "delimited", etc.), specific formats (passwd files,
web logs, etc.), a variety of other kinds of formats (XML, Mp3, HTML tables),
and, for some operations, any DBI accessible database. The number of
supported formats will continue to grow rapidly since there is an open API
making it easy for any author to create additional format parsers which can
be plugged in to AnyData.

Data in these various formats can come from local files, from remote files,
or from perl data structures such as strings and arrays.

Regardless of the format or source of the data, it may be accessed and/or
modified using all standard DBI methods and a subset of SQL syntax.

In addition to standard database access to files, the module also supports
in-memory tables which allow you to create temporary views; to combine data
from a number of sources; to quickly prototype database systems; and to
display or save the data in any of the supported formats (e.g. to display
data in a CSV file as an HTML table). These in-memory tables can be created
from any combination of DBI databases or files of any format. They may also
be created from perl data structures which means it's possible to quickly
prototype a database system without any file access or rdbms backend.

The module also supports converting files between any of the supported
formats (e.g. save selected data from MySQL or Oracle to an XML file).
