I did not want to open such topic but alarming message has appeared in 
English list: 

It says:
I was at a meeting in the danish mysql usergroup a couple of weeks ago, 
and one of the people there was the releasemanager from mysql.
He told us that mysql ver. 4.0 is unsupported, mysql ver. 4.1 will reach 
end-of-life on 31/12-2006, so in less than 4 weeks all webmasters that 
want to run a mysqlserver that is supported with securitypatches will 
need to run ver. 5.0.

Given the fact that typo3 does not work with default installation of 
5.0, we should resolve the issue ASAP and decide what we support.

I would vote for mysql 4.0 as a "minimum" for all branches, 
"recommended" for mysql 4.1 and "may run" for mysql 5.0 (after fixes/tests).
