    How often have you ported an app from one database engine to another (e.g., MySQL to Oracle)?
    Once.
    How often have you had completely separate apps writing to the same data store (using completely different code bases)?
    I would say 50% of the time (but I'm a Middleware Engineer and not a web programmer).
    Do you depend on non-portable database features?
    Quite frequently.
    Have you experienced programmers damaging your data because the logic wasn't in the database layer?
    Actually... not that I can think of.
