 Well, except if migrating _from_ mySQL, whose features are usually
covered by all other sql data base implementation (some kind of upward
compatibility ;-) 
 (No pun on mySQL, I personally do not like to see more features than a
non-expert can keep in mind anyway ... the sql experts may disagree on
this, of course ;-)

 Actually my code just contains some few "select foo from bar"
statements, so it most probably will not change when migrating the data
base. But I see, my case seems to be a very specific one, and if the sql-db is 
migrated I will survive having to change a few lines ...

 As I understand  we agree on the original point of the discussion.

Cheers,
