Neither am I unless we can improve on the original. Do you have any that
have been in mind that will work for drupal?

I  think db_rewrite_url will be hard to find an equivalent for but I'm
sure we can hack that in... I'd ideally want support for

1) mysql
2) postgresql
3) oracle
4) db2 
5) sqlite

features I'd like to see are 
1) replication/cluster support
2) query result caching
3) transaction support
