That sounds almost like they're using something like Propel [ see propelorm.org ] whereby you define the database using XML and it generates a load of PHP code to do 'stuff'.
(Doctrine is equivalent afaik). This would probably require significant changes to the code base - i.e no embedded SQL, needing some sort of model/service layer and so on.

[Un]Fortunately Moodle is significantly larger in all metrics - I can't see Microsoft sponsoring Xerte :-/
