intent to create virtual package "mysql-server"

Hi !

I'm the new MySQL maintainer. Since the mysql programmer decided to give
away the version before the current version as GPL (starting in about a
month or too), I decided (after talking to the former mysql maintainers) 
to create a new package structure for the mysql packages:
	mysql-nonfree-server		(most recent version)
	mysql-server			(coming soon...older version)
	mysql-client			(most recent version)
	mysql-doc			(most recent version)	
	mysql-dev			(most recent version)

So I like to make a "Provides: mysqld-server" in the two server packages.

BTW: Is it ok to call the v.package "mysql-server" just like the actual
package ?
