Wasn't the other problem the fact that if this driver got included,
people that decided to redistribute APR-util under a non-FOSS licence
(i.e. proprietary) could be doing so illegally (unbeknown to them), as
their software would then link against MySQL, for which they would need
a commercial MySQL licence and ASF wasn't cool with exposing its
licensees to such a risk with the software it ships?

PS. I personally would like to see the driver in APR-util.
