Hey Rodrigo,

No, this would not work because System.Data.TDS would have to be private to
the System.Data.dll assembly which would could not be seen by the
Mono.Data.SybaseClient.dll assembly.  System.Data in Mono must expose only
the same classes that's in the .NET Framework.

This is why I said we need to put the TDS common c# files in Mono.Data.TDS
and then System.Data.dll and Mono.Data.SybaseClient.dll will both build from
files.  There will be no Mono.Data.TDS assembly.

>hmm, if using FreeTDS, one implementation should be able to connect to
>both databases. So I think it would be a good idea to have a
>System.Data.TDS provider, and have then SD.SqlClient and MD.SybaseClient
>just inherit from it.
