Yeah, Matt, you're right to call me on that one. I regretted that statement
as soon as I hit send and I've already recanted it in this thread.
I've just been frustrated lately at not being able to use simple stuff like
subselect queries in what I am building. But that's not a matter of MySQL
not supporting the features I want, but a matter the WP core needing to
maintaining wider install base. And as a point of fact, I could ignore the
restrictions, and release publicly for a later version of WordPress that
requires a more recent version if MySQL, if I so chose. That's something I
think I just might do.
