Not to rain on my MySQL/Sun bash parade, but your response is based on
the extremely poor assumption that Sun would put 100 developers on a
single project.  While Sun has certainly had its share of
software-related problems in the past, I would hope that they
understand basic software project management.  It's much more likely
that they will have teams of 6-8 people working on individual
projects.
