Oh? I never noticed. Seems like a strange dependency to me (shouldn't it
be a suggested package instead? I guess that's debatable), if the plugin
is optional that is. It basically means you have to install
mysql-common, libmysqlclient15off and other mysql components in order to
run an application that primarily doesn't use mysql unless an optional
plugin is installed?
Doesn't sound logical to me, perhaps I'm missing something or
misunderstanding something here?
