I have.  I helped move an app from MySQL to Oracle once.  It took a lot
of work to get rid of mysql-isms, but the DBI code itself hardly changed
at all.  I would agree with the earlier poster that the level of
abstraction DBI provides is really helpful when this sort of thing comes
along.  I suspect Pear::DB is fine for this too.
