[ MySQL changes client library to GPL.]

This is _very_ interesting, and not surprising.  MySQL got users to
adopt MySQL, then they change the client license to get users to
purchase commercial, non-GPL licenses.

We need to use this opportunity to encourage PHP folks to switch to
PostgreSQL.

Notice the second URL mentions Interbase before PostgreSQL, which I find
curious.
