it seems pretty obvious to me. the sybase people have written a new
driver which is being released in binary only form (hence proprietary)
and also they have written a DBD for it which they will (or have) put on
cpan. as usual the DBD will be open source and free. i would expect the
binary lib to downloadable but useless without a sybase server which is
commercial. the confusion is from not clearly describing the binary lib
vs the perl/cpan DBD module as separate entities.
