So as a general note, running PowerDNS on MySQL views has uncovered
performance problems, memory leaks and bugs - most likely within MySQL.

So before attempting MySQL views for PowerDNS operations, please test really
well & know that if you report problems, the first thing we'll do is ask if
you can reproduce them using our unmodified schema.

We've not heard of problems when using PostgreSQL views. I just found out
that sqlite also has views, and we've also not heard problems about those.
But I'm unsure if anyone is doing that.
