Gilles, and everyone else a Happy New Year. Yes, I'm looking forward to 
feedback on MySQL - but only positive. ((:-)) No, seriously, I know that there 
will be problems. Currently I only use MySQL for testing and it is running 
really well here. It is important that we write in the release note that the 
core DB with the migration tool should be copied into a new DB and should be 
started with a new created thumbnail and face DB.
