This enhancement request is to request  APIs where we can provide the Salesforce.com SessionID and SessionURL instead of passing in standard username and password (+ security token). The motivation here would be to use oAuth which is a more secure way of authenticating the user whereby the user is re-directed to Salesforce.com to be authenticated and the application gets the sessionID and sessionURL tokens which can be used to query data in Salesforce.com. So if the ODBC driver can take this tokens instead of the actual user credentials that would be helpful.
