I've not heard of any, and I don't recall Chuck mentioning any. Someone
else was looking at V3 IIRC. Anyway, this would be great to have as a

Likewise. I believe Stipe Tolj produced a cygwin mysql client, but not
the server end. Again, this has my vote.

I'm easy on this one, no personal use, but I can see it getting used.
Are there any commandline tools with it? If not, then I think the Net
and Web categories are incorrect (it has no direct use). Contrast with
libxml2, which has xmllint in the package. If/when I split libxml2 into
client and library packages, the client will be in docs, but the library
won't be.

Excellent, again, this has my vote.

4 packages is a great contribution - there's not need to apologise for
not doing *everything* :}.
