I agree with Miguel about not renaming the mono distributed ByteFX
libraries, but just if two conditions apply:

-1- If they renamed the client that they now distribute under the GPL.
If not, we may have problems with versioning/linking to the wrong
assembly in keeping the same name. UPDATE: just checked the csproj for
their Connector/.NET and their assembly is now called MySQL.Data, so
we don't have this problem.

-2- ByteFX latest LGPL-ed code may involve some trademark, so that we
may need to change some names if the trademark owner demand to do

Oh, well, for me: I'm shifting to using Prevalence and/or
PostgreSQL/NPgSQL in all my future developments anyway.

"Eu poderia suportar, embora não sem dor, que tivessem
ido todos os meus amores, mas enlouqueceria se perdesse
todos os meus amigos!
A alguns deles não procuro, basta-me saber que eles existem.
Esta mera condição me encoraja a seguir em frente pela vida....
mas é delicioso que eu saiba e sinta que os adoro,  
embora não declare e não os procure sempre".
        Vinicius de Moraes - O "Poetinha"
My bad translation:
"I could survive, not without pain, that all my lovers
would disappear, but would be driven crazy if 
I had lost all my friends!
Some I don't even have to reach, I just need to know that they exist.
This mere condition makes me brave enough to go ahead with my life...
but it is sweet that I know and feel that I love them,
even if I don't state it openly and reach for them always."
        Vinicius de Moraes - Brazilian Poet
