If MUL here has the same meaning as for the DESCRIBE or SHOW COLUMNS
statements, it doesn't refer to the number of columns in the index.
Rather, it indicates that the index allows multiple instances of a given
value. (That is, the index is not unique-valued.) Note that a UNIQUE
index on a NULL column shows up as MUL because the index allows multiple
