Insightful stuff. $1B is too round a number to be a real valuation,
IMHO. I'm not really certain they would do that.

Certainly Sun would be foolish to pay $1B for MySQL when Oracle and IBM
had already paid so much less for profitable and strategic pieces of the
MySQL cake.

Shame they didn't pay $999 million. We could go a long way with $1m. :-)
