Package: php5-mysql
Version: 5.1.6-2
Severity: important

Hello Debian PHP Maintainers,

There is a circular dependency between php5-mysql and php5-mysqli:

php5-mysql 	:Depends: php5-mysqli (= 5.1.6-2)
php5-mysqli 	:Depends: php5-mysql (= 5.1.6-2)

Circular dependencies are known to cause problems during upgrade, so we
should try to get rid of them.

See threads 

What is the purpose to have both packages if users are requested to
install both of them anyway?

Imagine a large red swirl here.
