Re: More enum values in enum fields


well, another doubts that i had some time ago reading unireg source...

1)why it have a 64k limit? that's a logical limit (a limit in int variable
or char or something like it)? or just a "well i think 64k is a good
'constant' limit"?

2)why we "still" with this "old" unireg format?
i know that someone must start the new format and it will not be compatible
with mysql...
but there's any raw idea or a issue in mdev or lauchpad about changing .frm
format or creating a new one?

maybe something more human readable YAML or JSON, and a space for engine
information https://mariadb.atlassian.net/browse/MDEV-3936
