It depends on your value of small:

df -k /mysql*
Filesystem                   Size        Used   Available Capacity  Mounted on
mysqla#mysqla         209715200   136332008    73363504    66%    /mysqla
mysqlb#mysqlb         209715200   192189552    17504864    92%    /mysqlb
mysqlc#mysqlc         209715200   127955469    81740544    62%    /mysqlc
mysqld#mysqld         209715200   171582111    38133089    82%    /mysqld
mysqle#mysqle         209715200   100388182   109311880    48%    /mysqle
mysqlf#mysqlf         209715200   182784033    26910192    88%    /mysqlf


Mysql4 may not be fully Ansi SQL compliant, but it is fast, which if you
have 1000 nodes of cluster blatting results back into it, may be a more
critical requirement.

Cheers,
