You can always strip out the support for the DB's you're not going to
use. This should improve performance some. Also, ADODb is a great
abstraction layer, but we've found that we use less than half of its
fuctionality. It's great that the functionality is there, so you can
pare it down to your needs, but it's really a cure-all when what you
need is an abstraction layer that works for YOUR needs!
 Don't be afraid to try slimming it down, but I'd keep an original copy
somewhere in case you find that your paring knife was a little too

Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] adodb is slow

Any sort of abstraction library is going to be slower than directly
using the 
API.. I don't see how you can get around that.
