As some noticed, MySQL 4.1.7 is now in Raw Hide.  The FLOSS exception is
as yet not acceptable to our legal folks (that work is ongoing) so the
LGPL-licensed 3.x client libraries and headers are still being included
and any applications under GPL-incompatible licenses are being adjusted
to use them.

There is a known issue where 3.x clients can't connect to the 4.1.7
server unless --old-passwords is specified in my.cnf which I don't think
is resolved in the 4.1.7 packages yet.
