What Jon said about MySQL lacking functionality doesn't much apply, in this case. For this, you need a crypt function, and the ability to do some basic lookups, which MySQL can handle quite nicely. BTW, I'm not sure what MySQL is lacking exactly. There are a few seldom-used SQL language things that are not implemented, but I can't thing of much else. -- J.
