[wp-hackers] Percona Server and WordPress

Has any one tried running Percona Server on their WP configs?

It is a drop in replacement for MySQL and has impressive stats.  They 
brag about being some 40% faster than MySQL InnoDB
(I do note that this stat comparison is from 2010 and MySQL 5.5.8 and 
MySQL 5.5 is on 20 now.  So maybe there isn't as much of a difference 
any more or they'd have updated that page?)

Percona Server appears to be free and available in deb and RPM repos:

I was just wondering if anyone has moved to this MySQL replacement as an 
optimization step. And if so, if they'd be willing to share their 
thoughts and impressions of the process.
