Default iodbc Vs unixodbc, are they compatible?

Hi DEVs,
me and Pierre are building KDE 4.4 packages, but to provide the
soprano virtuoso backend we need the iODBC driver that conflicts with
unixODBC.
The unixODBC in [extra] is required by 9 packages.
We don't know if these two drivers are API compatible, so there is
anyone that knows if we can replace unixodbc with iodbc?
If they are, we could add provides=('odbc') or 'odbc-driver' to both PKGBUILDs.

Thanks

Looks like there is nor real need for a conflict. I'll push a
non-conflicting libiodbc package to kde-unstable soon.

these files are in both:
/usr/include/odbcinst.h
/usr/include/sql.h
/usr/include/sqltypes.h
/usr/include/sqlucode.h
/usr/lib/libodbc.so

I saw the apr-util-iodbc in AUR, but it doesn't fully work as
explained in this[1] bug report. So seems they are not API compatible.

Yes, I just finished uploading of new libiodbc, virtuoso and soprano. The
iodbc package was just "not optimal".
