text is fully supported according to http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/BLOB.html

The paranthesis are not, and are to be considered a bug. Please mail me with further bug reports. Don't post them here.

Invalid INSTALL instructions
In the INSTALL file of proma v0.7.3, it includes the following instructions on creating a table for proma with mySQL:

CREATE TABLE users (
userid varchar(255) NOT NULL,
name varchar(255) NULL,
mail varchar(255) NULL,
uid int(11) NULL default '65534',
gid int(11) NULL default '65534',
passwd varchar(255) NOT NULL,
shell varchar(255) NOT NULL default '/bin/nonexistent',
homedir varchar(255) NOT NULL default '/some/fancy/homedir',
note text() NULL default '',
count int(11) NOT NULL default 0,
admin int(1) NOT NULL default 0
);

The issue is, the text() type is not supported under mySQL, only longtext, mediumtext, and tinytext are, and without the parenthesis.
