thanks for spotting, I've fixed the problem in git. I'll upload a new
version soonish.

Fwiw the reason this hasn't been catched by the usual dpkg-shlibsdeps
magic is that libmysqlclient.so is dlopen()ed at runtime. The need to
do that because PostgreSQL and MySQL are apparently providing
conflicting symbols and dlopen resolves that.
