EnterpriseDB: ora2pg and mssql2pg?

From the EnterpriseDB web site:

We have worked hard to make EnterpriseDB "feel" like the enterprise databases you're used to. Its built-in “Redwood” compatibility mode will be comfortable for long-time developers and DBAs, and it will work with many existing applications as well. “Redmond” mode is on the way. And EDB’s tools look and behave the way you expect them to.

In their press coverage, E-DB has alluded that they'll be shipping run-time compatibility for Oracle and SQL Server, and this web site snippet is further confirmation. (I hope that's what they mean, and not that they're simply skinning the admin tools.) But I wonder how compelling a feature this will be, given that Ingres already has design-time migration tools, and doesn't seem to be generating much buzz.

Anyway, I was curious enough about the product to have set up a call tomorrow with EnterpriseDB's CEO Andy Astor. If you have any questions you'd like me to ask about the forthcoming release, please leave a comment or drop me an email. More to come.
