Actual SQL code isn't usable in MySQL with widely used versions (3.x.x).
It uses CURSORS in lots of places, something that MySQL doesn't have. I
am not an expert in MySQL so maybe I could be wrong, but for use MySQL
as storage backend we have to modify a lot the to MySQL code.

In next versions of libgda, 1.2 I think, the CURSOR (and other things)
code will be embedded in the library, so you can safely don't use cursor
and let libgda to manage this kind of things.

So we have paths right now:

- Start simplifying the SQL code, something that could be good thinking
in libgda 1.2,  so we can start using the MySQL database.

- Wait until libgda 1.2 hits the streets and convert the SQL code. I CC
Rodrigo Moya, the mantainer and project leader of libgda, so he can
guide us in this decission.
