I don't think they are brain dead. Well that is at first I thought so too,
but then thinking some more it made sense. After all MySQL is used mostly
for web pages and even your dynamic content doesn't change that often. But
in between there are thousands of concurrent access that all execute the
very same statement. This feature makes no sense IMO for the "normal" use we
both probably had in mind when first reading, but for this web usage I see a
benefit if it's implementable.
