Feel free to poke through the CVS logs and find a mysql build for F-8
that enabled the server by default.  I didn't see it in a quick look.

Regardless, it should not be started on install, so the current
behavior is correct and desirable.

Starting services by default has been discouraged in the packaging
guidelines for quite a long time.  If there were (or are) packages
that did (or do) so, it's a bug for any service that listens on the
network by default.
