[php-maint] Bug#576412: Bug#576412: Bug#576412: Bug#576412: Bug#576412: php5: Please add MySQL native driver "mysqlnd" support for PHP 5.3.x

it may be a good time to rething mysqlnd inclusion. SSL and
compression is supported in the version in the unstable.

Personally I dislike the idea of having private mysql library in the
PHP, but if it helps the users...

Another option would be to package php5-mysql and php5-mysqlnd as
separate conflicting packages, so users can chose.
