MySQL's stored procedure support

MySQL is planning to support stored procedures in 5.0, but is implementing its own stored procedure language, rather than using Java as the stored procedure language. Any idea as to why this approach is being taken?

The ANSI SQL standard specifies a language for stored procedures, and as MySQL AB has ANSI SQL standards compliance as a goal, they will be following the standard rather than implementing a language such as Java. MySQL's stored procedure syntax will be closest to IBM's DB2, which also follows the SQL standard for stored procedures.
