If this is really the holdup, then I'm prepared to champion the charge against
MySQL making exceptions for specific packages.

They already do for PHP. What other packages spcifically link with MySQL from
Core that they'd need to give their approval for?

It's silly to perpetually maintain MySQL 3 over this. Their licensing is
supposed to get commercial folk to pay when they distribute *their*
applications, not when an OS vendor ships a database.
