But if Rock might be the future of databases, why wouldn't IBM be interested? Or perhaps, why would IBM be okay with Oracle having such a capability (in addition to having significant control of Java along with Solaris)? I always hope that IBM knows more than they let on, so maybe they have something better in mind. (And monkeys might fly out ... never mind.)

Hmmm... "...the ability to optimize its database software—at the level of machine code..."... That has an almost familiar sound.
