Yes it does use DBI so actual changes to the code should be minimal
but I only have MySQL installed and don't know much about the differences
between SQL in the two versions so initially my package will be for MySQL
only and will go into contrib.

However if some sends me a patch for postgres support, I will gladly
incorporate it. (Right back at ya Craig :-)
I hope to have an initial package by the end of the day.
