sort of dream in the database world,

I think there was quite a good marketing about Cluster, with white papers
and webinars (I simply loved them) but at the end, somewhat similar to
MySQL Proxy (which is even worse), it was hard to adopt it.
Stewart, do you have idea on how many (%) MySQL Cluster installation are

Also I think with Cluster version 7.2 it might be the time to try again,
didnt try it, but from what I read, it sounds much better.
I also would like to try/study Percona's XtraDB Cluster based on Galera.
Thanks a lot
PS: now I will chase you for a signature on the book!
