OK, bugzilla is probably the best place for discussion about several pdb*sql
modules problems - it is public, so everyone can find if someone else works
on some problem or tested it and so on.

At this moment I ca't have two small test servers - one for mysql and
another for pgsql. So I can test code for mysql it it can compile and start,
but I'm not able to test it for longer time. For pgsql I can do this. It
will be great if for example Florian can test pdb_mysql more.

OK, thanks a lot. I will look tomorrow and within weekend on current CVS
code and I will try to tidy pdb_sql issues in bugzilla so we will know what
is critical, what is already done etc.
