Linux has as many ways to uniformly access different databases as it
has XF86 interfaces.  Maybe more.
Consider all the many layers that exist for such purposes, not to
mention the built-in access layers in languages.  All of these things
offer their own way of accessing database tables more or less
independantly of the backend.
