For those interested: Adabas D uses ODBC as it's C API, even on Unix. So
code for the ODBC Adapter should be reusable.

It will be very problematic on Linux. The communication layer in the ODBC
lib checks for changes in the process id. As Linux gives each thread a new
process id, I'm not sure having a Zope adapter on linux for multiple threads
is possible at all.
