I am not sure about that. We still live in the strange dichotomy where
we consider that MySQL server might get installed from different
repository (or unstable) and the original "mytop" is meant to be used
with MySQL server (from Oracle).
Maybe there should be some clear naming split in the future (like what
happened with libmariadb C library), but that would be a buster
material, because that would need:
1) walk through all the commands and replace all "my" and "mysql" with
2) make a compatibility package on top of that that would decide what
command to use based on the default "MySQL" provider in the system
Definitely lot of careful work.
