Personally I see the lack of MySQL "support" within APR as a
big minus. Let's be honest, MySQL is the most popular and
used OS DB out there. Having an incredibly useful APR capability
which cannot be fully utilized and still be within the spirit
of being commercial-friendly I think will limit the reach
and potential audience of dbd.

I think it's worth our effort and time to look into what can be
done/negotiated with MySQL.
