So that my point (from another part of the thread) is clear:

I can live with them not ever making it possibel to run atop PgSQL.

I would be *much* less happy if they switched to *only* being able to
use *Embedded* MySQL (as opposed to the standalone version --
*particularly* if it made it impossible to use said standalone version
on the same machine -- and I am clearly not alone.

(MySQL is pretty promiscuous about which my.cnf to read; it can cause
problems trying to run 2 on one box.)
