I think you're right for most cases Craig, but for one of our projects
we wanted the mysql client... the gumstix was going to check the main
database for a certain entry, then do something if it finds an entry.
I think we're going to move to something that can handle network
outages... going to export mysql tables on the server to sqlite files
and send them out to the gumstix every X minutes.
Still the client would be nice to have (it's what I imagine most
people would want with mysql on the gumstix). There aren't many (any?)
devices that can connect to a database server and at the same time
control robots =3D)
