This seems like it would be a good idea forporting applications written against a
MySQL or Postgres backend, or where Unix ODBC drivers are available. However,
the major Windows office packages come with a pile of ODBC drivers for common
It might be more useful to write a converter that looks like an ODBC driver to
Windows aplications but passes requests along to a Perl DBI driver. There seems to
be a better selection of those, and all the ones on CPAN are, or course,
open-soource. Does Wine presently depend on Perl in any other way?
