ROFL... :-)

Excellent idea. Mozilla is in trouble -by accident- with Firebird, one of the main open source databases [the 3rd one, according to the Open Directory <http://dmoz.org/Computers…re/Databases/Open_Source/> and the Google Directory: Databases -> Open Source <http://directory.google.c…re/Databases/Open_Source/> ]. But better let's do the things in the big way, and go deliberately for a nice war on Oracle, the #1 corporate database. ;-)

Thanks for the moment of good humor, Zardoz. All this conflict is being too serious...
