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?
