	I think it's all about a marketting move. I don't imagine how SAP
DB and MySQL could be "merged", and developing a new system from scratch
doesn't seem to be plausible. I don't expect much from this at least in
short/mid-term (regarding software, not media hype). Anyway, in two or
three years we may se a new database that possibly will do what PostgreSQL
does now and have been doing for a long time.
