  • ODBC/SQL: Allow dynamic, transactionally-safe sequence updates

    Sequences should be able to be updated to dynamic values in a transactionally-atomic manner (e.g. setting the current value to MIN(a, b)). Possible use-cases include using a self-join to find the first unused id and setting the index for other clients...
