Not my choice.  We're using Radiator for authentication and it requires 
the DBI to use an SQL server as a data source.

Your question got me to looking deeper into the problem and somewhere in 
the Radiator FAQ I found that one can use DBD::Sybase to connect to an 
MSSql database.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
