Its been explained to me like this:
* libmysqlclient is GPL, with an exception given to things that are not
GPL to link to it:
* OpenSSL is given an exception, despite being GPL incompatible
* However, now anything that links to *libmysqlclient* must also
explicitly give OpenSSL an exception since they are effectively
transitively accepting the OpenSSL license, which is not compatible.
With almost 150 reverse depends on libmysqlclient, it would be a lot of
work to make sure all of those projects gave OpenSSL an exception.
