Does BDE support 16bit ODBC access (in Delphi 2.0)?

After much hassle and effort I never had any success getting my
16 bit drivers to work on the Polaris (Delphi 2.0 beta) releases
(despite much well-intentioned but erroneous advice to the
contrary). 32 bit -- it's not just a good idea, its the law.
