Perhaps. The only problem with that is it will depend on the SQL --
some DBI drivers don't return field names unless there is at least one
row returned. I will not get into parsing field names from the select,
so it is probably best to manage that part yourself -- you presumably
know what fields you queried, and can save them to a pointer hash.

I will keep it in mind and not make any promises.
