Yeah, except for the resources eaten by MySQL, which has no place in
a "really demanding environment", IMHO. Not wanting to start
a religious war... it is my opinion when I suggest to use a proper
database server instead.

Agreed. In my medium sized environment this scaled well, but if we are talking really post 10mbit very mixed traffic and complex stats, mysql aint gonna cut it. Still, if youre in charge of such a thing, it should be no problem for you to hack ipac-ng to work with postgres, or use iptables log+syslog-ng to relay to a log server and analyze it there (although im not shure this would be an ideal solution... id go for the lazy db).
