I vote on this too. Also is easy for new users to join Yahoo Groups.
Can I read between the lines that you agree with the 'fb-' names?

1st. 'We're taking potencial support revenue from Borland'. Can you explain

3th: Are you saying that you are not worry with IB/MySQL/Postgres? Just with
Oracle & MsSQL? Ok, we are one step further that I was thinking. Good
move... I like that. A lot.
