Just a thought...
When this issue came up with Moodle, Microsoft sponsored the development required for the db abstraction.
That sounds almost like they're using something like Propel [ see propelorm.org<http://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 :-/
