Will running SQL Server via wine, or SQLite/VistaDB allow me to compile a
program with Visual-Studio generated databases with Mono?

Because that is what I need - to take existing code meant for Windows and
be able to compile it as-is under Linux.

If not, maybe the namespace should be added minimalistically, or as a
wrapper for something...
