In this case, I would say use "driver" and reserve "type" for M$
databases then. 1) less confusing for us app writers -- everything
neatly matches the ADOdb specs 2) it can be documented and consistent
-- thus easier -- for the admins. If we say "only use Type if you're
dealing with Microsoft databases" then it's documented and consistent.
