That's why I said "I'm not suggesting that MySQL is better for virtual
hosting...". I've been virtual hosting with PostgreSQL for years also
(not 8 years though, that's impressive).

I was just kind of thinking out loud. It would be kind of interesting if
there were resource controls, but I think that Tom already said that
would be too resource-intensive and not worth it (although I don't
recall the exact context).
