Sure, but you don't announce it and cause people extra work when it is
not needed. Annoucing now fits nicely with my argument to wait till
version 2.2 for the new version requirement.
I've got a list of the top 100 webhosts according to google page rank.
It's not a perfect list, but it has the all of the big boys I expected
to see, everything form DreamHost to 50megs. That include all the ones
you found on the site (Good job BTW).
If no one objects, for those that don't list it, I'll put out inquiries
to their sales staff. I'll ask what MySQL version they provide with
their most basic package that includes MySQL databases. This is very
optomistic for a survey, but just maybe we can get 20-30 responses back
in a reasonable amount of time.
