Hello Daniel,

we have been toying with such a development as part of our work on ejabberd and can take the lead and maintenance if you would like to share the development.

Christophe has already work on this kind of development and it take part of our work on maintening a reference pgsql and hopefully mysql driver implementation.

Contact me privately if you need to share some thoughts or details.

When we started our project in my company, we didn't really know which RDBMS and which database driver we would have to use in production (PostgreSQL or MySQL, ODBC ANSI vs. ODBC Unicode vs. pgsql vs. etc.).  We wrote a really (too) simple driver abstraction that we called EDBC for Erlang DataBase Connectivity and we were able to plug PostgreSQL ODBC OTP layer and pgsql driver.
