Yup! I started one. It was working in cheesy test cases on linux
sitting over ODBC->Mysql. I also started a native Mysql and I think a
OCI adapter (s) for it. The main reason I started writing my own was
that at the time I didn't find anything for C. Plus, my stuff uses APR
for everything it could. It does do some things differently than
traditional JDBC ODBC. For instance, it supports loading SQL statements
from Subversion config files. It supports identification of parameters
and parameter types in those files as well. Actually, quite a bit more
now that I think of it. Of course, that code hasn't been run in about
18 months:-) But I can get it going when the plugin stuff is in place.

I don't know if I'd call it terrible. It's just tooooo proprietary.
