If the DB adapter is pure Ruby, you shouldn't have any issues. If the
adapter compiles a native extension, you could run into compilation
issues (which ones exactly, I'm not sure; I guess anything with
pointers could lead to issues). If the adapter compiles to a 32 bit
executable (or is binary), you could run into linking/loading issues
(no idea if *NIX can load 32 bit shared objects into 64 bit
executables).

Though the folk I have met,
(Ah, how soon!) they forget
When I've moved on to some other place,
There may be one or two,
When I've played and passed through,
Who'll remember my song or my face.
