Actually, there was a prototype. See
http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/~ejrh/subversion/mysql/ (referenced
from notes/sql-backend in our repository.)

My recollection is that it never got past the point of abysmal
performance. SQL engines traditionally do not store tree-structured
data very efficiently; you can find strangely familiar discussions in
the OpenLDAP documentation about why they use BDB rather than an SQL
back end.
