Hi Seth,

No, these pkgs do not contain the perl, python, php etc mysql/db modules 
- but we've rebuilt and updated the libmysqlclient libraries that the 
mysql/db functions in these languages use - so that we can maintain 
compatibility without having to rebuilt pretty much everything!

Maybe some details here might come in handy :
