I really don't know which one was "first", but as both "postgresql"
and "mysql-server" have been around for pretty much "ever", I don't
think it makes much sense to rename the packages and update all
reverse dependencies just because of this. This would also affect any
third-party repository.

Yeah, those should indeed be fixed.
