Those are slightly different. The str_dup and str_assign I have, take in
a C-string, or a pointer+length. Where as the pkg_str_dup from ut.h
takes const str* as source. I did try to look if suitable functions
already exists but could not find with quick search. If there's one, let
me know :)

I think the comments were modelled mostly after the original database
module which I used as starting point. It didn't have any doxygen stuff
so I didn't realise it's standard. I'll take a look at this.

Also leftover from the older module. Will remove.

I thought the idea is to just pass the stuff to SQL interpreter so we
can use whatever the database supports or not.

SELECT DISTINCT is supported according to
