Good to bring this up!
What problem are you experiencing? What version of Mysql do you have
installed? In what environment?
Dropping support for mysql 3.x for WP 2.1 was discussed at length on
wp-hackers. One thread:
It seemed to me that min req of mysql 4.1 had favor, with a strong
underpinning of at least 4.0 being a min, but I don't think a decision
has been published.
I don't think any 4.1 or greater features are currently being used in
core. subqueries anywhere?
Hope that helps,
