For the users' point of view it has been "superceeded", from the technical
one it is still there as it provides libmysqlclient12. Once mysql-dfsg-4.1
has been installed in testing (needs to be built on sparc) and debian-release
has not too much to do with other transitions I will ask the other
maintainers to switch to libmysqlclient14 (from 4.1).

You could have got that from me, too :) Anyway, as I hopefully have made the
situation a bit clearer now, let's just agree that the bug should not be
closed now but that I will not spend my time on fixing it, too, as it'll be
obsolete soon :-)
