[fdo-internals] FDO RFC 4 - Provider Support for ArcSDE 9.2

Yes, it is a little complex. However, the alternate solutions each offer
their own level of complexity and maintenance. 

The primary reason we had to proceed in this direction was because 

1) Our users required we support both SDKs
2) The names of the ArcSDE libraries changed between 91 and 92. 

If the ArcSDE team changes the library names in future releases then we
would have to re-evaluate those changes against the requirement that we
keep supporting 91, 92 9x, etc.

This solution looks ok to me, though I wonder a bit at the complexity.
Will future versions of SDE result in additional variations, or is this
issue related to some particular change in the API between SDE 9.1 and
