Only problem with PDO - it's not a lot of use since you have to load the
Firebird driver as well to get all the goodies. So no one has the need
to make it work at all :(

I have no problems with ADOdb running Firebird and while I could use a
PDO driver with it, it's not as powerful as even the PHP4 version of the
Firebird driver so perhaps until PDO actually provides cross database
functions it's not worth wasting time on.
