There are a lot of open bugs for improving SQL Server support in Django.
Eventually I want to help on the task that's migrating from adodbapi, but I needed something that "works now".
I've included a MINIMAL patch for the existing ado_mssql backend: It fixes the %s/? parameter issue and includes a bare-bones table inspector.
(It does not address LIMIT/TOP, time resolution, etc.)
Basically, this allows a "manage.py syncdb" to run against this backend, and create the default auth_/django_ tables and insert data, something that trunk wasn't doing for me.
I'd love to add any tests this patch needs, if someone can point me to how to get the unit tests running.
