seancorfield/next.jdbc 1.0.0-alpha8

I've talked about this in a few groups -- it's been a long time coming. This is the "next generation" of clojure.java.jdbc -- a modern wrapper for JDBC, that focuses on reduce/transducers, qualified-keywords, and datafy/nav support (so, yes, it requires Clojure 1.10).


The next generation of clojure.java.jdbc: a new low-level Clojure wrapper for JDBC-based access to databases. It's intended to be both faster and simpler than clojure.java.jdbc and it's where I intend to focus my future energy, although I have not yet decided whether it will ultimately be a new set of namespaces in the Contrib lib or a separate, standalone OSS library!

At this point, I'm looking for feedback on the API and the approach (as well as bugs, performance issues, etc). Please take it for a spin and let me know what you think via GitHub issues or in the #sql channel on the Clojurians Slack or the #sql stream on the Clojurians Zulip.

The group/artifact ID will change at some point: and the actual namespaces will too, but I will try to make that as painless as possible when I take this out of the alpha phase.
