Security upgrade for potato by new major version and distro change?


As MySQL has a bad security problem and is accordingly to a @mysql.com person
no longer supported in potato's version my only chance is to build the latest
(and not at least officially announced as stable) version 3.23.31 for potato.

As this would be too simple MySQL is now even GPL and could go from
non-free to main replacing the mysql-gpl-client package and the mysql-client

Are these changes ok for a severity=high fix? Or is there a C/C++ coder out
there who would backport the patch? 

If I don't hear from you I build at master.debian.org and simply upload
and wait...
