Well, I haven't contributed to bugzilla for some time due to my current 
time constraints, but I am still following the discussion, and this one 
caught my attention :-).

I would like to support this way of thinking, as removing the dependency 
on native MySQL fulltext search would also remove (probably the last?) 
dependency on MySQL specific behavior.
I mean, if we solve the full text search problem in DB agnostic way, 
we'd get not only greater independence on MySQL DB engine (btw., 
according to the solid web, the solidDB engine does not support fulltext 
indexing), but also full text search on other DBs like Postgres (and 
Oracle etc. in the future).
The only requirement is this to be DB agnostic, so Senna probably does 
not fit...

Back into read-only mode now... :-)
