I've been using it quite a bit recently (and there's a new manual
on `R Data Import/Export' being written for 1.2.0 that you can see a draft of
at http://developer.r-project.org/R-data.pdf, and also an early
manual based on MySQL there).

The RODBC package seems to have quite a number of users. There's a
reported bug on R-bugs with data frames with NAs in that might be worth
knowing about.
