AFAIR I had some bad surprises in mySQL indexes, especially fulltext indexes
because of reserved words, or words so common in english that they aren't
included in the index. The situation gets even weirder with french content of
DBs when some words are used both in english & french...
As for stored procedures, this is tempting, but maintenance gets harder when
parts of the code are split between mySQL tables and LC scripts...
