Just to be completely clear....

A number of the articles about MySQL's buying Jim's soul
suggest that they're getting access to Firebird or that
Netfrastructure is based on Firebird. In fact, Netfrastructure
includes Jim's third transactional, multi-generational,
relational database. This database differs from Firebird
in a number of ways, of which two are very important. First,
it is multi-generational only in its in-memory record cache,
which makes it much more memory intensive than Firebird.
Second, it uses a serial log rather than careful writes, so
it requires a recovery process after a crash.
