Database abstraction and the idea that databases can be plug and play, criticised here : http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/archives/002194.html

Sounds like Zawodny is criticising a particular ModularityMistake : that of trying to treat the access to databases in general as the interface, rather than the database access in your particular system as the interface. Sounds plausible to me.

More discussion : where http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/view/76 where Marc Hammon comments something pretty similar.
