i think it can be done.

my guess is that it would be better if mysql did not need to fork. the harm
would be the confusion caused to users. it would be sad if users chose not
to use mysql because they had listened to scare stories about its possible
future. if trust busters can be cajoled into making sure oracle doesn't harm
oss mysql, that would be better.
