My spamtrap (spamassassin) is becoming too restrictive these days, I'll 
have to readjust the triggers. So I just read your answer.

I'm not sure about phpMyAdmin 3. We won't be changing the product much.

And I don't know about the market penetration for MySQL 3.x and 4.x. I 
am in favor of dropping support for MySQL 3.x.
