[development] D7 side effect

Don't get me wrong, I'm chuffed to mint balls about the D7 effort and 
the result, for many reasons, not least of which is the amazing talent 
represented by it.

That said, I received a letter today from the hoster stating that my 
account was a performance problem because it had over 1000 tables. Eight 
Drupal sites coud be over 1000 tables.

I have a hosting account with 'unlimited domains' and up to 25 
databases. I use the account both for hosting several live domains, most 
multi site, as well as a test area that clients can access for testing 
changes to existing domains. 8 Drupal sites could be over 1000 tables 
with the typical array of add-on modules, let alone that most of these 
sites are doing e-commerce.

I've let them know that they might want to consider a more meaningful 
indicator of performance issues than a script that counts tables, since 
probably none of these sites does more than 100 transactions per day. If 
they hold firm, I'll blog (and post here) their name.
