As we currently fight to get the large mysql / ...-transition through,
can we please have an status update ASAP.

I think it would be best to undo it for the moment, and do it at an
more appropriate time (if that was an intended change). And of course,
coordinating with -release before doing such changes is helpful (read:
required) to avoid have too many broken things at the same time.
