Sorry, I forgot but RJP also worked on fixing bio/io/sql.rb module in 2006,
so the current version should not be broken.

I don't follow the recent changes on BioSQL schema but during the last
Phyloinformatics Hackathon (2006 Dec http://hackathon.nescent.org/),
which we (Goto-san and me) had attended, Hilmar was working on
the integration of tree into the database.


  BioSQL The BioSQL group created a new set of tables, optional within BioSQL,
  for the purposes of storing phylogenetic trees, both sequence or species.
  A script was added to the package that allows one to read NEXUS files and
  write any trees found in the files to the database.
