Yeah was sort of thinking along the same lines - does any of the survey 
data help here, i.e. what's the percentage of deployments using mysql vs 

Another example is we want testing for Ceph/Rbd but I don't expect that 
to be in the upstream CI/gate, I more or less expect that from some 3rd 
party CI run by someone using it in production and really really cares 
about it's quality and maintenance in the tree.
