I'm not actually involved with SQL Server or Oracle, other people are
working on them. Perhaps they can say more.

I have a similar need. I have started to work on
finishing (actually mergeing and testing) the Sybase
stuff that is currently branched in CVS. Since Sybase
is so close to MSSQL (or vice versa), the MSSQL
SQLObject DBConnection will probably just "point to,
extend from,or contain" the Sybase DBConnection.

As far as ODBC is concerned, my first thought was to
have a simple wrapper layer around the other drivers
(where you'd pass in the class for the type of server
you plan on talking to), but I have since been
experimenting with a python driver for mssql
(http://pymssql.sourceforge.net/). So, I haven't done
anything with ODBC, yet.

Long story short: I will probably commit a unit tested
Sybase/MSSQL DBConnection within the next week or so.
