Did I say I ran ROMA ;) Nah, I was talking about handler_osm. But I'm 
currently busy to implement group concat in MonetDB so it can 'natively' 
connected to a virtual table in mapserver, without needing patches in 
OGR. Currently it requires an extra implementation thing, which their 
developers think it is voodoo, while it matches exactly with 'osm' in 
MySQL like schema's.

When that is complete anyone can use any GIS product on the normal 
MySQL/MonetDB database, with the features of PostGIS.
