Support Sybase as a backend for ArcSDE, the same way it is now with Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Informix and PostgreSQL

Back in the old days Sybase supported SDE and Micrsoft SQL Server didn't. This back around 1994 so we bought Sybase. But Sybase didn't implement versioning which is fundimental to SDE. This was a Sybase decision not ESRI.
I went to a Sybase conference in the late 1990's and talked to the top reps on the last day's open question and answer session. When I asked why Sybase wasn't keeping up some of the top reps didn't even know Sybase was no longer compatiable with SDE. The ones that did asked how many users in the room also had ESRI in their organizations. It was easily less than 5% of us that raised our hands. That ended the discussion.
My agency has been transitioning off of Sybase to MS SQL over the past 10 years. Our last database is due to be migrated this winter. It would be so ironic if Sybase finally started working with ESRI again to reestablish compatibility.
