[Mono-dev] Mono.Data.SybaseClient

Probably it was removed because it doesn't work with ASE 15.5, which is 
the current version.
I tried it, and it just didn't work.

If you find a driver that works, let me know.
I wanted to try how compatible Sybase is with MS-SQL, since they have a 
common ancestor.
Couldn't get Sybase to work with Ubuntu 10 (worked fine on 9), but 
10.10's anyway a desaster.
Looking forward to v11, coming April 28/29. Else I'm switching back to 
good old Debian.

My understanding is that Sybase sells their .NET driver, but that only 
together with a support contract (& accompanying download login) that 
you don't really need, and there is no telling whether that .NET driver 
works on Linux.

All in all pretty bad if you only want to evaluate it, because right-now 
you can't.

Kind regards
