That is a major change that wasn't discussed on the mailing lists that
I'm aware of. Why is ANSI still required? No other DBMS that I'm aware
of has to have 2 drivers. Why can't the actual problem be fixed?

Changing back to 2 drivers again is a major pain because it means
renaming all the DLLs and drivers yet again - something that has the
potential to *really* annoy users.

Regards, Dave.
