Yeah, well, its Alpha, so we can't rely on it for quite a while yet. I
don't even think 4.0 is released yet. Its not vapourware, since you can
download it, but its not something I'd trust a database too.

For those who are interested, I was playing with postgres last night,
and it can optimise OR queries (as long as there is an index on all the
bits we need to look at). Using subselects instead of LEFT JOINS also
speeds things up a ton. We should get dkl's pachs in, and then move bmo
over at some point in the short term.
