Not at all! DBI is a great package and DBD::Sybase works well. It's safe to say we wouldn't have been able to get this far without DBD::Sybase.

I'm just trying to point out some of the pitfalls of running Perl for a long time. Test packages you intend to use over a long time and benchmark Memory consumption.
"Look, Shiny Things!" is not a better business strategy than compatibility and reuse.
