I think that current phpMyAdmin's code is too MySQL-oriented and that
this product should remain an interface for MySQL only. Another point is
the "My" in phpMyAdmin and the signal it gives to the community.

I have nothing against Drizzle but I think that the phpMyAdmin team
should remain focussed on MySQL. Anybody can fork the phpMyAdmin's code
to take another direction but I certainly do not have free time to be
part of this other team.

However I am open to diverging opinions :)
