The functions db_init_cursor, db_set_cursor_type_insert etc.
are not implemented in db drivers and SQL commands
are executed by db_execute_immediate.

It is certainly desirable to implement that functions and avoid
SQL command strings passed to drivers. It can improve performance
and resolve possible problems with floating points in some drivers.
