While I much prefer PostgreSQL, I have been using MySQL with
horde as it looks like that's where there support is best.

I've been doing *nix systems since 1982 with Radio Shack Xenix so I'm fine
with the CLI tools.  I've also done a fair amount of DB work in python and
perl using their DBI modules.

What I haven't been able to find are the sql script files to do the initial
database creation that were present in older versions of horde, imp,
kronolith, turba, etc.
