Yes, but the problem is that is doesn't use JDBC metadata calls to 
ensure it simply works with any JDBC Driver.

Of course we've tested it for JDBC against Virtuoso eons ago, something 
we do instinctively re. all JDBC or ODBC based apps.

If JDBC is done right, you wouldn't have to make statements like: SQL 
Server support added (which make my hair stand). I am sure you know, 
JDBC Drivers have existed for SQL Server for eons etc..

To conclude, are you implying the following re. D2R:

1. JDBC support has evolved since 2004?
2. It now works with any JDBC Driver for any ANSI SQL compliant RDBMS.
