We, pgRouting developers are willing to contribute our code and know how 
to "database independent" routing engine development.

Current pgRouting connects with PostgreSQL very much. But this does not 
mean we have to write codes from scratch again. 

Additionally, we have lessons to learn from pgRouting developers' and 
users' communities such as Anton pointed out. I believe they should be 
useful in designing new routing engine.
