I'm working on InstantObjects, but the problem is that it's very 
incompatible with current LCl UTF8, many ansistrings functions, a lot of 
bugs, and nesteddatasets list is in heavy usage.The results are not good 
so far, however I was able to create new SQLDB connector for 
instantobjects and have most of GUI controls compilable, yet a lot of 
bugs prevent it to be usable.

It's not available in public, maybe later.
