This whole thread is the main reason why many projects choose to build a 
really DB independent system. Like AdoDB or Active Record. Those two, IMO are 
OTT for drupal, but still, its worth noting it down somewhere: "Nov 2007: big 
issues, long threads, frustrated developers, delayed release: caused by our 
DB-bstraction, not being really abstract enough".
