I find this type of spin from the WebGUI people interesting. they show a
lack of understanding of the issues, clearly, and are using the MySQL brand
to promote their software. it is written the way it is because it will get
the attention of us, the pg people, and we will be "up in arms" about the
"drop" of pg, etc.

I say, let them-- who needs people that are willing to use spin as a
marketing tool?
