The problem is that the util module has two purposes. First, to hold
stuff common to all examples, so they don't have to repeat a lot of
code, so that the bit that's different about each example is easier to
see. Second, to hold code that isn't germane to learning MySQL++, such
as the command line parsing stuff.
