Using Sybase really worth it?

I've got an existing app backed by a Sybase ASE db that I am tasked to replace. I'm pretty new to RoR but want to make use of it. I seem to be fighting Sybase at every turn. I got the sybase adapter gem installed and the freetds library. I can make find_by_sql and select_all queries. When I try to rake migrate to create a table, however, there is a problem with the number of arguments for the exec_insert method in sybase_adapter.rb and the call to it from database_statements.rb, method insert in the 4.1.1 active record abstract connection adapter. I'm now to the point of overwhelming feelings that Sybase is not worth the hassle. I can probably get switched over to MySQL but it will be a political battle with people who think what I am doing should be easy and won't understand. Any opinions or thoughts?
