FWIW, there are license issues with upgrading to mysql-4.x.

Hi Bill, I've reading the MySQL license and I saw this....

You need to purchase commercial non-GPL MySQL licenses: 

If you distribute MySQL Software with your non open source software, 
If you want warranty from MySQL AB for the MySQL software, 
If you want to support MySQL development. 

As you can see Fedora is a open source software, so I don't see any 
problem in upgrading to mysql-4.x, but to upgrade in RedHat 
Enterprise Linux yes, now, we are talking here of Fedora, wich is 
supposed to be a really OpenSource Linux distro, there are a lot of 
Linux distros around there with mysql-4.x already in. Mysql has been 
the preferred among the years for web sites and in many others apps, 
Then why it can't be included in Fedora???
Maybe I'm wrong....???
Regards Aliet

They MySQL folks changed the licensing from 3.23 to 4.0 and we are not
able to ship (in any release) the 4.0x packages until MySQL changes the
licensing.  There are licensing conflicts with MySQL 4.0 and PHP,
for example, that are not there with MySQL 3.23x.  This is a known
problem and it has been sent upstream.  As soon as we get the green
light, we'll move to 4.0.
