well, any down side ? may be slower for example. So, if you don't plan to
switch db system, the speed of the layer could be your criteria.

I agreed. ADOdb (http://php.weblogs.com/ADODB) is quite nice, fast, (the
fatest ?) and very helpful even if you don't change db.
See benchmark at http://phplens.com/lens/adodb/. Well, it's from adodb, may
be you would find an other one written by those using pear_db.
