I wonder if anyone tested WP with Percona Server (a MySQL replacement with a powerful innodb-based engine and many other great patches, built by one of the major MySQL consultance firm in the world..). 

I'm just trying to compile it and have a test run but I'd love to know if someone had the same thought..
