For what concern proftpd, it does not use libpam-mysql at all,
so I see no problem for that.

I can confirm for proftpd-mysql/libssl issue.  

Me was one that asked MySQL people to consider libssl for the new FLOSS,
without results. At least they included explicitly links to
opensource.org and FSF for licenses, else that FLOSS would be also more bad now.
Currently, I cannot move to libmysqlclient12. I would see if gnutls can
be used instead of libssl, but some modules are not supported upstream
in that way (e.g. mod_ldap). Grrrr.
