Bitchx in Ubuntu Edgy

I head the #ubuntu channel on EFnet (nick: ferro), it's growing 
steadily, but it's overly large yet :) Someone came into the channel 
asking why BitchX in Edgy depends on a mysqllib. I thought he was 
joking, but alas... after looking for myself I noticed that it does 
indeed depend on a mysql lib now:

Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4-1), libmysqlclient15off (>= 5.0.19-1), 
libncurses5 (>= 5.4-5)
Suggests: libmysqlclient15off, x-terminal-emulator

I have used BitchX since... about '94ish, and I know it doesn't 
"need"/"depend" on that particular mysql lib. Perhaps a mistake was made 
by including a Suggestion as a Dependency?

Please rectify where incorrect.

Thank you,

Varsis (aka ferro)

p.s forwarded this to the ubuntu-motu list though I'm not on it. Any 
questions, please contact me directly.
