I really saw the horror and I know the feeling, so it was quite nice to see other people dealing with the same issues. Some of the examples for fixing the issues were not really neat and some had hidden bugs, like the one for `GROUP_CONCAT ` it will work, but only until 1024 chars as this is the limit of `GROUP_CONCAT`.
