Hi all,

an other way to use „some“ foreign tables - is to use postgres foreign table support. I was able to include some tables from a mysql server in postgres - and did map them into modules. This way i was able to make crud operations native with Odoo on a mysql database

I share the opinion that to do that would be a really huge effort, and
in addition to that it would break hundreds of community modules in
subtle ways.

In the case someone has already MySQL infrastructure in place, I think
the effort to set up a postgresql server (even with default settings),
train the people, maybe pay someone to maintain them if needed would
be hugely cheaper and better than attempting a port.
