Feel free to try


and tell me back. Everybody is free to hammer the server, if it breaks
I'll have to restrict the custom queries accordingly. The defaults could
be changed easily but should remain sane.

a non performance impaired db layout would not have problems with that.
Keep in mind that I had to nuke the assign combo box since the developer
role is a ... free-form string and I'm afraid topics is done the same
way... So if you play with it you have to:

- fetch all the entries from the db (with or w/out natural joins with
other tables)

- iterate over them

- stringcompare to get the topic groups

- nested loop over them to get something.

- format

- show
