And they are planning a TDS Gateway - a program that provides TDS
(ie MSSQL and SyBase) clients with access to other databses, the
first one being - surprise! - PostgreSQL.

ANSI standard SQL CLI than the current (IMHO not very elegant) protocol.
I have not looked at it, but I guess that they already have things
like prepare statements, standard binary format for data (which should
of course be made extendable for PGSQL), column bindings, getting
column info, and possibly other things needed to make effective
interactive client apps.
