That post is from last year, when MU and Lyceum went public around the 
same time. The main difference between Lyceum and MU is that Lyceum puts 
everything into monolithic tables where MU has a different set of tables 
for each blog. (In MU some tables are global, such as users.)

I believe the chief argument for the former at the time was that 
multiple tables wouldn't scale. So far multiple tables have worked well 
up to 626k blogs, who knows beyond that.
