IMHO most important RDBMS' are available through unixodbc, even the M$-toys.

No, better write this one as an unixodbc-driver. 
Always going over perl makes things slower and adds unneeded complexitiy.
Most cases will work w/ uodbc and these few which require perl modules
are acceptable to be slower.
