Removing the query.isActive() calls in favour of query.size() may have been 
more appropriate in cases where "query.size() > 0" is used.

query.isActive does not indicate that the query returned any results, only 
that it was executed successfully. If query.size > 0 is used then that 
suggested the original author wanted to check that the query returned a 

So yes, using both is redundant (although a very minor issue) and a patch for 
this probably would be accepted. Have you ever submitted such a patch?

If anyone has been hostile on the subject of mutli-db support, then it's 
probably because people won't take "no" as an answer. It's been established 
that we won't support multiple databases, the increased burden of maintaining 
that support is just one reason that immediately comes to mind. It also 
ignores other fundamental programs with the current system. The preferred 
solution is to use an embedded database, probably embedded mysql. 

You seem to have taken rejection on the postgreSQL issue very personally and 
so you now spend your time being destructive instead of constructive. Ideas 
and patches are rejected all the time, even my own, most people accept that 
and move on, why can't you?

N.B. Patches against anything other than HEAD won't be accepted before you 
start submitting patches against a two year old version. We have better 
things to do than adapt those changes to the current code base.
