+1 from me.

I looked a little bit at the (?) other persistence projects at Apache  
-- iBatis and Cayenne (both incubating), but I haven't really made up  
my mind as to their suitability yet.

- The elephant in the room with iBatis is the same as with raw JDBC  
-- there is no schema generation facility, so a from-scratch database  
design would be required for each database we wanted to support.

- Cayenne looks more promising in that it will generate the db schemas.

The almost cheating route may be to use Cayenne to import a Hibernate- 
generated schema, generate objects from that, and bind them to the  
DAO interfaces...
