I added 'db_query', 'db_query_one' function calls ages ago (see https://github.com/thexerteproject/xerteonlinetoolkits/blob/develop/website_code/php/database_library.php ) which do try to allow for the migration away from direct use of the PHP mysql driver (i.e. you could swap to use mysqli / mysqlnd or PDO or whatever easily enough). However, the last time I looked there was plenty of the codebase which still had 'mysql_query()' calls (or other mysql_ calls).
In an ideal world, the SQL which is embedded everywhere would be living in some sort of model class/library and be portable (or different files would be used for different databases) - so the project could run on SQLite/PostgreSQL/MSSQL etc but I suspect this would be difficult to achieve.
