	You can't--it depends on the version of MySQL in use. (It might also
depend on the Windows version in use? I'm not sure. I suspect 32-bit vs.
64-bit would be an issue, but Perl is already compiled differently for
those, so that's not a problem.) If we bundled MySQL also, we could
build a DBD::mysql. But then if people wanted to use PostgreSQL, they'd
have a hard time.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
