Christoph Otto (Volt)" <a-chotto at microsoft.com> from (guess)
Microsoft is trying to port D6 to MS SQL. He posted 2 weeks ago about
some issues with serial/sequences/identity and I think he can offer
an interesting point of view about DB abstraction layers and the
issues he encountered in porting D6 to Microsoft SQL.

I recently had to write my classes to speed up paging in MS SQL
without renouncing to all the lovely stuff Drupal can offer and well
it was instructive.

I think the experience people trying to port D6 to MS SQL have
accumulated may be of interest to all.
