But what about all those database engines that can use JDBC?

OpenBase
FrontBase
Firebird
Postrgres
MySQL
FileMaker

Etc. etc.

I know some of them are already supported by Rev but wouldn't it be nice to
have a single method to connect to all those databases that didn't require
setting up and configuring ODBC?
