In this case I would suggest to abstract it like this:

// ASequenceName -> The name of the sequence for usage in Postgres,
etc. Ignored for MSSQL, etc.
// ARecordValues -> The values of the fields, all should be placed in
the sequence in which they exist in the table columns. nil is
// Returns the index to the primary key
string; ARecordValues: array of const): Integer;

Then it will ... insert a new record with the record values that you
provided and give back the primary key for it.

At least that's how I would expect it =D

For each database it would simply figure out if it needs to get the
sequence number or if it will auto-generate or whatever.
