Database library?

I have an interface working with my database engine (  It is also 
in an early stage, but does not use ODBC.  I believe that much of what I am 
doing will generalize reasonably well, but this is untested.  I will be 
testing both Oracle and MSSQL soon, and I hope to have reasonable beta code 
in three or four weeks; of course this is subject to change depending on what 

If anyone has access to Sybase or Informix, and is interested in testing those 
environments, drop me an email.

To clarify, there are really two ODBC specifications, the SQL language spec 
and the API spec.  In general, I'm assuming compliance with ANSI and ODBC SQL 
syntax (which are slightly different), but I'm not using the ODBC API which 
is ungainly and inefficient (and just plain ugly).
