I'm working on re-factoring the JDBC code, to turn it into a library of
utility classes and the JDBC driver that uses those utilities to encode
the JDBC specific logic on top of the communication protocol.
It might be worth for you to keep this in mind when looking somewhat
closer at it.  I cannot say anything about when it will be finished, but
it probably gives you the tools to simply do what you want without
hacking too mych protocol specific code yourself.  That would also
guarantee you to have a painless migration to newer protocol versions as
the APIs hopefully stay the same.

I suppose you used the monetdb-install.sh script or similar when you
refer to "a single command"?  Are there any platforms there that we
don't test on?  It is always good to know what platforms it is working
