Now I am, yes, given that you've given me another tiny nugget i.e. that the
problem is nothing to do with a new license for MySQL specifically but rather
with a clash betweeen PHP's license and that of MySQL 4.1. Given that, Mr.
Google was most informative when asked about "php mysql license". Simply
asking Mr. Google about "mysql license" was no help at all.
But in any event, it seems that MySQL AB is working on a license exemption
specifically for PHP so hopefully (for PHP users) everything will be alright
