Now wait, if MySQL++ can be dynamically linked to then this is also a
viable option:

	Proprietary app ->
		dynamically linked to LGPL mysql++ ->
		dynamically linked to GPL licensed mysql

Since the LGPL woul isolate the Proprietary App from the GPL copyleft

Only the mysql commercial license.  We now have:

	Proprietary app ->
		dynamically linked to LGPL mysql++ ->
		dynamically linked to commercially licensed mysql

Or:

	Proprietary app ->
		dynamically linked to LGPL mysql++ ->
		dynamically linked to BSD Postgresql

Of course, option 2 is still vapourware. :-)
