Why? Personally, I think it falls under 'the right tool for the job' ...
there are two things I use MySQL for: phpAdsNew and Spamassassin/Bayes DB
... neither of which I care if there is data lost for, and for which using
Berkeley DB would work just as well, if I cared to learn its API ...
And ya, that is *still* the level I put MySQL at ... Berkeley DB + an SQL
How many ppl on this list are using Berkeley DB for their stuff, when a
PostgreSQL backend is available? Postfix has native PostgreSQL hooks for
most of their maps, but how many ppl use that over hash tables?
But, as an aside, it has been awhile since I've tried phpPgAds, and
haven't with 8.1, so I've messaged Matteo offlist about seeing about
getting it to perform ... so, we'll see ...
