I've never played with the AutoLoader like that, but the problem
could be that sql() itself is autoloaded (at least up to 2.07).

Wouldn't it be easier to inherit the subs from Sybase::DBlib?
I see that you're also using a Dblogin module (which I assume
does a new Sybase::DBlib).

Me I would build it that way, or write stubs for the 5 or 6 subs
that you need - not as elegant maybe, but a lot more obvious to
whoever comes after you :-)
