25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41
 *
 * This class is defines interface to databases. Each supported database
 * will provide methods for accessing the data stored there in a generic
 * manner. The methods are meant to be low-level, without much or any knowledge
 * about DNS and should be possible to translate directly to queries.
 *
 * On the other hand, how the communication with database is done and in what
 * schema (in case of relational/SQL database) is up to the concrete classes.
 *
 * This class is non-copyable, as copying connections to database makes little
 * sense and will not be needed.
 *
 * \todo Is it true this does not need to be copied? For example the zone
 *     iterator might need it's own copy. But a virtual clone() method might
 *     be better for that than copy constructor.
 *
 * \note The same application may create multiple connections to the same
42 43 44
 *     database, having multiple instances of this class. If the database
 *     allows having multiple open queries at one connection, the connection
 *     class may share it.
