Hi There,

I would be interested in helping out with the PDO conversion, in the light
that it would help support Mysql in the future.  This would be first time
for me helping with an open source project so some help and guidance would
be appreciated. Ie would be happy to be allocated tasks with a basic
explanation on what needs to be done in a particular piece of code.

I agree with nukeing it for you 1.0 release.  6-8 weeks is not enough 
time to get something like that in.  I also agree with Francois about 
working toward PDO.  I can start working on a mySql schema for a future 
release that will work with PDO.

How do you guys feel?
