Sorry to keep bringing this up, but it's obviously unclear from the  
resulting e-mails in the thread:

Is this discussion about:

1.) the best way for people who are *already* going to port WP to  
another db to work together on a fork of some kind by building a  
$wpdb replacement and seeing whatever else they need to do[*]?

2.) changing WP to officially support ADOdb?

I was sure it was #1, yet folks keep popping up to explain why #2 is  
a bad idea so maybe I have it wrong.

[*] Changing the string escaping and dates in all queries will be  
required for ADOdb.
