Granting that the details of connecting to the DB and SQL extensions
differ, it'd be nice if a prototypical SQL backend tried to stay as
general as possible (e.g. sequences are available in most
commonly-used RDBs, but table inheritance isn't), to make it more
possible to port the result from Postgres to, say, MySQL.

Just my $0.02.
