Subject apr_dbd_freetds

PR 53666 tells us apr_dbd_freetds doesn't work with Sybase,
and very probably never did.  The reporter attaches a patch,
but it's one I'm not happy with, even if I had access to any
FreeTDS backend to test-drive (which I don't).  The basic
objection is that FreeTDS doesn't support prepared statements,
and the emulation in the driver opens big security issues.

We've had a bit of a thread on the subject on dev@httpd.

Is anyone in a position to take up the baton on FreeTDS?

If not, perhaps it's time we dropped that driver in favour
of the ODBC one.
