Hmm this one might be for monty, not sure:
Is there any chance that a bittype could be implemented in MySQL e.g. called
FLAG where length was bit-length?
It is an awfull waste of space to use a byte where you only need a bit...
Here i am not only thinking about diskspace but also bandwidth since mysql
bitwise operators are limited i will have to retrieve the byte and do bit-math
on it in a serverside scripting language like php and then update the database
again with the byte. Now if this has to be done all the time it is a
considerable waste of bandwith i would think, please corect me if i am way off
