[freetds] Is FreeTDS compatible with SQL Server 2000 ( 64-bit) ?

Hi Paul,

Off the top of my head I can't think of anything in the TDS protocol that
might be affected by 64 bit addressability.
In the processing of TEXT datatypes we get get/send something called a "text
pointer", but this is already defined as 16 bytes long anyway...
Can text/image datatypes be potentially larger in the 64-bit version then in
the 32-bit version ? 

We'd be very interested in a positive affirmation of Freetds compatibility,
so the best of luck!
