OK. But let me add that, if MSSQL doesn't have "sp_tables", you could easily
add it. If it does and it works differently from Sybase's, well, then you
have a problem. Taking that into consideration, it's really better to use the
DBI generic methods, if possible, since you're more likely to be portable to
other DBDs should the need arise.
