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?
