  • Can you convert the old tables to back-compatibility views on the new table(s)?

    BTW, that essay was in the actual MySQL documentation. And it was removed, of course, once foreign key constraints were added.

    • We have no desire to add views to provide backwards-compatibility. This should (usually) be considered a "last resort" because otherwise, you layer on view after view every time you want to change a feature and thing become a mess. Plus, they're willing to make the switch, just not yet.
