[freetds] Missing ODBC functions: SQLDescribeParam, SQLExtend edFetch

Ah... Oracle must be trying to connect using older ODBC spec. Thank you so
much for this answer. This is exactly what I needed.
FYI, I've now tested FreeeTDS w/ unixODBC on a linux box, and they seem to
talk 2 each other w/o much problem. Unfortunately, I still need to wait
'till later to test it all with Oracle on the Solaris box.

You can do the same under windows... however DM can do additional
- backward compatibility. It can emulate some function using others. For
example SQLExtendedFetch it's deprecated in ODBC3 and implemented in DM
for compatibility. FreeTDS it's an ODBC3 driver, it can provide
functions for backward compatibility but not required.
- logging. Very useful.
- parameter checking. More safety
