It's been about 4-5 months since I looked at MySQL and yes I was indeed
thinking of transactions but if they've plugged that hole then great.

SCO OpenServer, yes. It doesnt have threads. MySQL requires them.
UnixWare does of course, so MySQL is not a problem there. I also just
have more experience with PostgreSQL ... like anyone else Im'm biased
towards the tools I know :) But you're right, the actual database is
irrelevant if you actually have a pluggable FS.

No worries I have a lot of pressure too :) We need a new SCM. CVS doesnt
do it, BitKeeper, while a great tool, is out of the running becuase
trivial operations result in a full tree clone (a problem with something
the size of UnixWare or OpenServer), so I am currently re-evaluating SVN
and am looking at Perforce as well. Last time I looked the text-base
penalty was what drove me away from svn but from my relatively casual
glances over mail topics I think that has been addressed to the point I
dont see it as an issue any longer.

Nope I'll willing (although not currently able till I read all the
literative and code) to help out with this. My evening times have been
freed recently so I have bandwith too. If you get to the point of needed
extra hands to help out with this endeavour, keep me in mind. I'll forge
on as best I can for now.
