IMO, this is one of the few things missing from DNN. The ultimate solution, IMO, is complete abstraction of the backend for custom module developers.
Unfortunetely, this is an enormous task. You have to provide a 'SQL scripting' engine that will create/modify/delete a backend db regardless of db engine.
I don't pretend to have any solution, but you're right, 9 times out of 10, developers aren't going to create providers for their cutom modules to other dbs except SQLServer.
This is the biggest missing link in the portal to date, IMO.
