[pkg-php-pear] Bug#869761: php-mdb2-driver-mysql: this package needs the (removed) mysql extension in php

Package: php-mdb2-driver-mysql
Version: 1.5.0b4-2
Severity: important

This package depends on the removed (php7) or deprecated (php>=5.5) mysql extension. 
The debian package php-mysql actually contains mysqli. This package becomes
unusable if someone removed php5 from his/her system.

Suggested fix: package the php-mdb2-driver-mysqli driver instead of the php-mdb2-driver-mysql.
The mysqli driver for mdb2 seems to work fine for me.
