I'm not too familiar with ADOdb, what are the benefits?
By rewrite, do you mean that the new version only uses
ADOdb, or have you added ADOdb as a supported back-end?

sqlreflector and row could definitely use a reworking.
I don't think they are used much. I think people mainly
use adbapi and write their own object mapping system.
What sort of things did you have in mind?
