Given we're now able to deploy the test SQL via SQL::Translator if it's 
available, running the tests on any supported database should be possible - as 
should pre-generating .sql files for all of them to ship in the dist so other 
people can do. However so far nobody's really stepped up and tried it, and I 
keep finding other things that are more important from my own POV.
