[OWASP-ESAPI] Any codec for Sybase?

I just want to clarify the use-case for the database encoders. It is not
common that these should be used in lieu of a parameterized query, however -
there is a business case for them in situations where you may be running a
series of dynamically built statements that have a large amount of
parameters in them. PreparedStatements as they become more and more complex
can actually degrade the performance of a system in comparison to String
concatenation. This is a pretty far out edge case for most applications, but
I have seen applications which process on the order of 10K transactions per
minute using PreparedStatements choke.

To the best of my knowledge this is the only real-world business case for
using the Encoders instead of a PreparedStatement.

That being said, it seems like this is a good candidate for a collection of
contribs - with Encoding potentially becoming part of the core API
functionality, it would be great to allow additional Encoders to be loaded
into the API *easily*
