DB/2 as MySQL storage engine

IBM's System I will deliver an integration of DB/2 into mySQL, that allows to use DB/2 (or DB/400 as it was called on the iSeries) as native storage engine for mySQL. While that move is primarily aimed at iSeries users to expand the number of applications they can run on the iSeries platform, I don't see why this integration should be confined to the iSeries.
Once the puzzle pieces come together you would be able to use mySQL applications to read/write Lotus Notes data. How kewl is that. Of course to make that happen, IBM needs an incentive (IBM isn't a charity). Time will tell.

    Humm, you've got my mind racing now.

    All sorts of possibilities & questions open up.

    It will be interesting to see how things progress with this.

    However, I don't have an AS/400 ..... I series .... whatever
