The mysql in 4.0beta is indeed 3.23.58, but there is now a mysql-4.1.9 in
rawhide, so it seems that they have worked out the licensing issues.

It is possible that 4.1.x can be released in RHEL 4 (and so in CentOS-4 as
well).  If it is not, I'll build a mysql-4 and make it an extras or
contrib build for CentOS-4 final ... because I want to use the new
administrator and it is only for mysql-4.
