I have been working a loong time ago on a drivers using the PHP's PDO  

The idea was to make a pluggable 'sort of'  interface, that tries to  
some of the problems of database issues in TYPO3 and DB differences.

The nice thing was I could make TYPO3 core fairly easy to work on  
MySQL, PostgreSQL and sqlite (yes typo3 on sqlite!)

The problem was however that the install tool worked kinda hackish and  
table where not created using a solid interface, with solid I do mean  
using TYPO3_DB functions.

If you are inteersted I can send you the extensions and we can talk on  
the phone.

The advantage of using PDO was for me is that you by-pass the AdoDB  
which is kinda slow.
