MySQL snapped up by Oracle

Sure, with Sun in house Oracle can serve up a unified Enterprise experience.  But what happens to MySQL?  Will it be killed to prevent competition?  Will it become a second tier, second class citizen to be sold to SMB’s that can’t cough up enough cash to buy the real thing?  Will it be the unstable testbeb for new technologies that get rolled into the pay only version once  they pan out?

Whatever happens,  if you depend on MySQL, your life just got complicated.
