The mysql package includes the MySQL daemon, the client, a few utilities,
and the C headers+libraries. (I thought about putting the development
stuff in another package called "mysql-dev", but I'm not sure if it's
worth the trouble since they are small.)
xmysql is dynamically linked against the X libs, so you'll need xlib6 in
order to run the program (besides xforms, etc.).

The package is called "libdbd-mysql-perl" and includes the DBD::Mysql
module for Perl--that's why it's included in the "interpreters" section.

They are included in the "mysql" package.

I thought about suggestions for the package, not mysql itself. I don't
know much about the internal details of mysql. Perhaps you should contact
the authors about your idea.
I hope my answers make sense to you :-)
