Hi Luis,

About this compiled MySQL adapter...

I haven't found much info on it, but from what I have read, it looks  
like it is useful if the database is residing locally on the same  
machine.  However, if you connect to the database via HTTP (which is  
what we're doing), it's not used.

Is this correct?
