Full partitioning support in MySQL would indeed be very interesting when comparing it against other vendors that have the same functionality for VLDBs.

Just some interesting questions:

* Indexing functionality. Will you support indexes on partitioned tables? How should we maintain indexes when dropping partitions? Will indexes also be partitioned or will they be global to the table data?
* Will you support updates on the partitioning key columns which could cause rows to be moved from one partition to another?

There are other questions regarding statistics, split/merge functionality of partitions but I don't find them as vital as the questions above.
