Though I appreciate to reduce the number of MySQL-packages in Debian, I
am unsure if it's currently the best time to do that. We already have
the c++-abi-transition at our hand, and to get more transitions mixed up
with that one might really be a call for trouble. On the other hands
side, keeping MySQL-4.0 in etch for some more weeks shouldn't really do
So, please wait with requiring other packages to rebuild. I don't see
an issue with filing wishlist-bugs right now, but please make sure that
these bugs contain a warning regarding the other currently running
transitions, and that the timeline of the other transitions (especially
the c++-abi one) has precedence.
