Then, respectfully, upstream do need to have their heads examined.
Using the mysql client libraries would be understandable, but
this is just completely objectionable.
I don't want a trace of mysql near my system, but I would like to
use kde4. Optional mysql database bindings for the server would
be preferable so I don't even need the mysql client libraries

You might want to reconsider not pulling in the mysql server package
into the default kde install by not including akonadi-server
in the metapackage dependencies. The current requirement to run
mysql is horrible in the extreme.
kde -> kdepim -> korganizer -> akonadi-server -> mysql-server
Ouch! Totally not acceptable.
