Basic TDataset/TDataSource is functioning. TDataset decsendents exist for
Mysql,Interbase and DBase; Oracle,PostGreSQL and ODBC should be easy to
add as well as we have 'plain' interfaces for them.

The code is tested - rudely. I would be very happy if you could do
stress-testing and communicate with me so we can fix or improve
things if needed.

I've started a design based on TDatabase/TTransaction/TQuery, but I haven't
been able to finish that yet. I hope to start this in a month or two.

Also, I recently found an open source alternative to MIDAS (HyperBase) -
and this is a gem which still needs including. Meaning that a TClientDataset
descendent of TDataset should be written.

As for a 'better way' than Borland did it: As long as you don't break
compatibility, please. But there is tons of DB-aware code out there
(just search Torry's pages or DSP) and it would be a shame not to be
able to use it by breaking compatibility.

Plenty of work, just take a pick. :-)
