Submission + - MySQL + AmazonS3??

Venotar writes: While perusing the MySQL conference website, I noticed that Mark Atwood will be discussing a plugin storage engine for Amazon's S3 with MySQL. Further googling only turned up Pete Freitag's interesting observation that combining such a plug-in with Amazon's EC2 could be very useful. Does anyone know where a copy of this plug-in could be found, or if it's just vaporware? It seems like the sort of tool that could shift the economics behind quite a few ways businesses use their technology, so I was curious to hear what sort of ideas the slashdot crowd would come up with.

I'm still waiting for the advent of the computer science groupie.
