Hey Mitch,

We're sticking with MySQL: 4.x and moving to 5.0 later next year.  Other DB
support would be great though for clients that have incumbent systems they
can't move from.  Of them, the top choice would be, gulp, MS SQL.

I know this may raise a few eyebrows, but mssql wouldn't hurt either.
