    Description

      We don't think the SMALL/MEDIUM/BIG text field distinction is actually necessary for performance in MySQL, and it doesn't apply (or is not the same) on other databases.

      Consequently it would be nice to remove it from xmldb in order to:

      a) simplify the interface

      b) stop people accidentally restricting things to 64KB (but only on certain DBs!) when they don't mean to.

      We think all fields could be BIG.
