So, what *am* I supposed to do? Rebuild against libmysqlclient12
and break licenses? Not rebuild and have an uninstallable snort-mysql? 

This same situation occurred back when I still maintained GnomeMeeting.
GnomeMeeting linked against libopenh323 and libpt, and one of those
linked OpenSSL which resulted in GnomeMeeting depending on OpenSSL.
Afaik this is still the case with GnomeMeeting. So GM is violating a
license too, right?

Should we massively ask permission to explicitly link against OpenSSL
from the OpenSSL upstream? It was something like that, right? You were
supposed to ask permission to link against OpenSSL.
