I'd rather have ADOdb and keep everything generic - especially where the
'preferred' database is PostgreSQL or MySQL.
That said, PHP5 may offer a path to speed, as John is looking to making
ADOdb an extension ;)

All the PHP/Firebird stuff will run across servers, and on any supported
OS, so I would not expect Daniel's update to be any different. Since
phpBB was native MySQL, I would suspect he has done a 'find & replace'
and then tidied the SQL.

I'm interested in a copy, since phpBB is already a module in TikiPro,
but will not currently install on many engines - but it's not urgent :)
