Transition plans for MySQL-5.1

Hello Release-Team

We packaged MySQL-5.1 in experimental and reached a state where the
packages could enter unstable. Along with the new upstream version
comes a change from libmysqlclient15 to libmysqlclient16 which is
a build-dep for a lot of packages.

When would you want us to do the upload to unstable?

Are there any other things we should consider except those on

BTW, in #450535 we were asked to think about symlinking
libmysqlclient.so.16 to libmysqlclient_r.so.16 because it would mean
less problems for e.g. Apache which uses other libraries who sometimes
link against one and sometimes the other. But as libmysqlclient_r is
lacking the global my_errno variable they are not binary compatible so
we stick with two different libraries even if both have the same shared
library symbol "libmysqlclient_16". Do you agree on that?
