Version 1.7.17 of MySQL++ has an autoconf test to check for the new
second argument to the MySQL C API function mysql_shutdown(). All is
well on Unixy platforms.
I'm now looking for comments on what to do on non-Unix type platforms,
where the configure script is not used.
One way to deal with this is to just ask people to define
HAVE_MYSQL_SHUTDOWN_LEVEL_ARG in their project file if they need it.
Another would be to add a commented-out version of this macro in
mysql++-windows.hh and put in the README that you should edit that file
to match your system.
Comments on these ideas or better ideas requested.
