A better project would be to make WP be multi-database compatible. Maybe
even make it more extendable so other people would be able to make there own
DB ports be simply making up a file. I'm sure you could use classes and
functions to produce this (such as, make a function called db_insert(), and
then in a file go:

function db_insert(stuff) {
//database query stuff here for inserting data

and then others. Then, make an option for which DB you want to use in
wp-config.php and make a folder where the files for the different DBs would
go to in like wp-includes/db [or something])...
