I have looked at tiOPF, because I would like to use it in Lazarus myself.

The core should compile quite easily. It's programmed quite clean, does not
seem to have Windows dependencies.

The persistence layers are a different thing: IBX will compile (maybe not easily),
Indy 9 should, I think Marco got it running. The ADO layer not, because we don't
have ADO. Oracle: No idea.

I think the best option would be to try and go for writing a new persistence layer,
based on SQLDB or so.

I haven't looked at the visual components, though.
