[csw-users] Support for various MySQL versions

Hello OpenCSW users,

I'm maintaining the MySQL packages and I'm currently working on the
MySQL-5.5 build. Versions 5.0 and 5.1 support the --program-suffix
switch, which makes it easy to accommodate installations alongside
each other, but MySQL-5.5 no longer supports that. The easiest thing
to do would be to remove the MySQL-5.{0,1} packages and replace them
with the 5.5 package some time in the future. What are your thoughts
about it? Do you need the 5.0 and 5.1 versions in the catalog, or are
you fine with just the 5.5 (or whatever the latest stable version is).

One note - the maintainers team is working on periodic (each 6 months)
releases, so MySQL version upgrades would be in sync with general
catalog releases.
