I'd just build mysql 4's source and install into /usr/local with the
'stow' package.  May I ask what mysql 4 offers over mysql 3?  Also, how
does it compare to Postgres?

While this is a worthy cause, it is annoyingly long signature.  If
you're unwilling/unable to remove it, could you at least prepend it with
a line containing only '-- ' (no quotes, obviously), so that people's
MUA's can filter/colour it?
