[debian-mysql] InnoDB (and other plugins) for Debian

I'm currently thinking about the best way to provide additional plugins
like InnoDB 1.0.4 for Debian. To compile to plugin, the complete source
code of MySQL is required, so we have two options:

- Include these plugins into the regular mysql-dfsg-5.1 source package, 
  and create mysql-plugins-* packages during the regular build.
- Create a separate mysql-plugins(-*) source package.

I prefer a separate source package, but we would need a mysql-source
package in Debian, so we could build-depend on it.
