I would prefer us to be clearer - in that, if you bundle the MySQL driver for
apr_dbd, you then have to follow GPL for the entire work as the GPL is more
restrictive than ALv2.  Hence, any derivative works (i.e. any application
using APR-util with the MySQL driver) must be GPLed as well.  -- justin
