Ah, good to know... I talked to Baron Schwartz (upstream of innotop and
mysqltoolkit) last week, sponsored his mysqltoolkit upload, and wanted
to sponsor his innotop package as well. He wasn't aware that the innotop
package is already included in the mysql-client package.

But I don't know if it's really a good idea to put all these packages
together in one single source package. Would be the opposite of what was
done with the X.org packages a while ago.

I wasn't talking about adding mysql-proxy to the mysql-server package, I
wanted to keep it a separate source package, but maintained within the
mysql svn repository.
