I am a bit of n00b on the hacker mailing list.  I love the wordpress  
db upgrade script.  I have found it helpful in many ways, but it I  
have always noticed the lack of foreign key support in the script.   
NO MORE!  I have made modifications to the script so that there is  
now support for adding and upgrading foreign keys for InnoDB tables  
in MySQL.  My question is, is there a need for this in Wordpress?  I  
have not seen any foreign keys in the db schema to date (hence the  
lack of support for handling them I dare say .. ).  I am interested  
in contributing this work back to the community that has given me so
