As a minor nitpick, xmysql is GPL'ed as Brian said, but the
license for xmysqladmin says:

 I reserve the copyright to xMySQLadmin. However, you are
 permitted to use and distribute xMySQLadmin, provided that you 
   (a) distribute it with the full sources, and 
   (b) that you leave this documentation and 
       copyright notice intact.

We don't distribute with full source, so we're not allowed to
distribute it?

However picks up this package should try to obtain the same
license change as xmysql, or package the source separately
as done with the tetex-src package.
