It was 1/2 frustration and 1/2 humor.. Then again I have a strange sense 
of humor.

I just thing that the MySQL developers are moving really fast and that 
their priorities are really wrong on this one. 

Again I think that if they're going to wait so long to fix this issue 
that they whould remove the feature.  Its just going to shoot people in 
the foot and claiming that you support subqueries isn't actually correct 
since they're not usable.
