The main reason is that MySQL has clustering capabilities, so I won't
have to use a second DBMS if I ever need a high-speed distributed
multi-master database. Since version 5.1, MySQL lets you store cluster
data on disk while keeping index fields in RAM, which I find to be a
very appealing combination because it allows fast queries combined
with large storage capacity (I think it would be great if Mnesia had
such an option, btw).
