The OQGraph engine in MariaDB 5.2 (and MySQL 5.0 - OurDelta build) allows developers to deal with hierarchies and networks right inside the database, using regular fast queries.

Applying this in a Drupal site, using friendlist_graph and other (existing or potential) modules, offers great advantages: features previously avoided -such as social networking- can now be done without a hassle!
