Wikimedia is nowhere *close* to the largest MySQL user. It's a
mid-sized MySQL user at most. It's one of the largest *websites*
using MySQL, but there are data warehouses and whatnot that have
vastly larger databases, and definitely more valuable ones. Besides,
we don't pay them any money, unlike some of their enterprise users.
