DBlib is certainly still available in OC 12.5. I've not heard any EOL
messages from Sybase (other than the fact that new features would not
be added to DBlibrary).
That said I think that porting to CTlib would probably be a good idea
- I'm open to discussing a DBlib emulation layer (although getting it
*right* would be challenging, I think).
