Hi there,

Mono have already in the Mono.Data namespace a library based on a simple 
abstract factory to be able to switch from a provider to another by 
simply changing the connection string. The consumer of the library only 
handles System.Data (ie IDbConnection, ...) interfaces which sounds 
perfect to me. In .net 2, such a mecanism should be included in the 
System.Data ns.
