 * <p>This class defines a wrapper for accessing a specific column in ResultSetMetaData.
 * This allows iteration over columns using idiomatic Groovy, e.g.
 * <pre>
 * meta.each {col ->
 *   println col.columnName
 * }
 * </pre>
 * All <code>ResultSetMetaData column methods taking a column index
 * are available on a column either as a no-arg getter or via a property.
 * </p>
 * <p>This wrapper is created by an iterator invoked for ResultSetMetaData.
