Other database platforms?

At this time there are no plans to target other database platforms (for the repository), for two main reasons:
  • XML to Table relies on many features unique to SQL Server (e.g., table-valued parameters, SQL Bulk Copy).
  • There doesn't seem to be much call for it. MySQL apparently already has something similar, and single-container databases like SQL Compact and SQLite seem like poor candidates for the high-volume data re-normalizing XML to Table is built for. And of course NoSQL databases are a totally different ballgame.
Are we way off here?
