The Debian/Ubuntu delta is a Rorschach test; people see in it what they want
to.  The mysql server packages haven't been in sync between Debian and
Ubuntu for at *least* the past 5 years, and possibly ever[1].  Some might
look at this and think it's a good thing that someone is trying to eliminate
the delta on this package now.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.

[1] it's harder to look up "ever" thanks to the constantly-changing source
package name.
