That depends on the platforms you want to target. AFAIK ADO is
Windows-only, so you bind yourself to Microsoft platforms. If you intend to
use *nix too, ODBC is the safer way to go, thanks to unixodbc (which can
use FreeTDS, a free implementation of the Sybase protocol as used by Sybase
and SQL Server). If you have the necessary time at hand, you can maybe
implement your own backend for SQLDB/ZEOS that directly uses FreeTDS,
completely skipping ODBC/ADO and still being platform independent.
