in Midgard we use a lot of metadata, so every bit counts.
for example, your table states that "MySQL 5.0.x" is fully functional,
but for us only 5.1.x+ works (maybe some latest 5.0.x also do, but
definitely not all of them) because 5.0.x doesn't provide enough
at the moment, we test all our releases against SQLite and MySQL 5.1.
I just wonder which of other "providers" will work for us, and which won't
