We already include innotop and mysqlreport in the mysql-client package so
one could add them. As there are a lot of other small utilities for mysql
out there one could also think about creating a new mysql-tools package
so that in the case of e.g. a security bug in mysql-proxy the mysql-servers
do not need to be updated. The security team and FTP masters had such
objections when I asked them if I should include another small tool last time.

The author of http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=189154
might be interested in adding them to his toolkit, too. He was in contact
with us a while before.
