Porting Bugzilla to HP NonStop

Those being the only support db platforms.

That said to test another db you would need to modify the following:
   Add a section calling the DBD-<your db here>

And you will need to create two files:

Take a look at the patch file I have up on http://www.zplace.com that
is a port for MSSQL. You may want to start be cloning the
Bugzilla\DB\mysql.pm and Bugzilla\DB\Schema\mysql.pm files and edited
where needed.

Keep in mind that your more or less on your own for support, except
where folks are feeling generous, since it is not a supported port.
If you can get it working I imagine if you can submit what you did
back to the community it might get added, that's my goal for mssql.

For my port I found some hard coded instances of functions where
assumptions had been made, such as substring, under mssql all three
parameters are required not just the first two.

Seeing Joel's update, the MSSQL patch is using DBD::ODBC already so
you can probably clone part of my code.
