[freetds] TDS protocol for TDS_Dynamic & MS-SQL

Hi ... I am trying to come up with a patch so that placeholders work
through ctlib from perl's DBD::Sybase (to a SQLServer 2000 backend ---
TDS 8.0). I've got a lot of it working, but I have found that there is
one bit of TDS where I can only find Sybase docs for TDS 5.0.

Basically, at one point, DBD::Sybase calls ct_dynamic(cmd,
CS_DESCRIBE_INPUT, ...). In TDS5, this would be handled by a TDS_DYNAMIC
request with a type of TDS_DYN_DESCIN. Does anyone have any idea if this
works similarly with TDS8?

Thanks in advance for any pointers!
