MySQL no longer fully open source database

Just in case anybody missed it: http://blogs.oracle.com/MySQL/entry/new_commercial_extensions_for_mysql

MySQL has long been an open source product, not an open source project…. and this really is the final nail in that.

To me, this was expected, but it’s still sad to see it.

I am very, very glad we have diverse copyright ownership in Drizzle so that this could not happen easily at all.
