That's very good. I gave a presentation abut databases on GNU/Linux to my local Free Software and GNU/Linux Club, somewhat directed for web/db and it was really good. Of course, the same questions and statements that we see here and on /. about MySQL came up and I was able to address them and convert about 10 people to switch from MySQL.
It still amazes me how MySQL gets this "free-pass" in the open source community. I guess the biggest reason for this would be PHP.

There have been talks about this but no one has actually done it AFAIK. IMHO this is a great idea and if you're up to do it, please do. I don't think aD would have any problems with it. Besides, this is free software arena. Have an itch? Scratch it. Spreading the ACS gospel only benefits aD.
