Since mysql is used by desktop applications we'll need to make sure that's 
supported there as well.  We don't want to get into another mess like we did 
with having to support 5.0 and 5.1 (to some degree) in Main.

I'm very interested in postgresql-9.0, but that should just happen since it's 
in Debian already and postgresql supports parallel installation of multiple 
versions.  The only question is if it should be the version in Main starting 
in O or P.  I think there are some packaging complications if the highest 
version in the archive isn't the one in Main (pitti would know for sure).
