Biggest problem areas I see would be stored procedures and the many SQL
differences. If you use stored procedures, they will need to be completely
rewritten. The SQL differences will get you too; someone who knows both
SQLA and PostgreSQL will have to review line-by-line. Stuff like SQLA's
"current timestamp" vs PostgreSQL "current_timestamp". Or, limiting returned
rows (SQLA: SELECT TOP 10 * FROM ... vs PostgreSQL: SELECT * FROM ... LIMIT
10). Just two examples. Where standards exist, PostgreSQL is much more
standard than Sybase.
