First, you should not address both of us but only respond to Jason's 
points. I in no way advocate slamming MySQL, but we should not ignore 
them either. Your initial argument was that we should not be competing 
against MySQL. The comparison between the two will continue to be 
made by many people for a long time to come. We cannot simply decide they 
are not worthy of our time and stand on the sidelines, waiting for the 
PostgreSQL vs. Oracle match.
