Jay, you should be talking to Benoit, how you can get started :).  
Benoit once wrote, he'd support the MySQL code maintainer in telling  
him what needs to be payed attention to. I'm pretty sure he'd still  
like to help you ;) ...

I still rule for "nuke it" unless a working MySQL code has been  
developed in a given timeframe.

The main reason is, that we have no maintainer for the MySQL code ...

The only chance for MySQL I see is, that somebody (you) will jump on  
maintaining the code.

And I think, that the timeframe can't be much longer than 6 - 8  
weeks, because I'd like to see either working MySQL code for WiFiDog  
1.0 or no MySQL code in WiFiDog 1.0 at all.

What do you other guys think of it?

Cheers, Max!
