about '[opensuse] MySQL Plugins - Public Opinion':
Packaging possibilities:

1) Make it as much modular as it is possible. Everything what can be
build as a module will be build as a module and let the people choose
what they really want.

I vote here. Specifically, introduce mysql-core and a mysql-$plugin for
each plugin. Have the mysql package bring in -core and all -${plugin}s
that are currently in 5.0. Have mysql-full bring in -core and
all -${plugin}s that are packaged, as long as no -$plugin conflicts with a
different one. Eventually, transition to the mysql package bringing
in -core and popular/expected plugins -- basically tuned toward "the
average user" instead of "exactly what 5.0 users expect".

Thank you for voting. If I understand correctly you are suggesting that
mysql package will be virtual package which will install mysql-core
which will be bare MySQL without any plugins and all usual myslq-*-plugin
packages... This is certainly interesting idea.
