I thought (again vague memories) the plan was to use mysql embedded? 
FWIW, Amarok2 has recent switched to this and while currently MySQL does 
not support the libmysqld in 5.0 it is provided and does work with that 
version. Officially it will be supported in 5.1 and Monty has also 
stated that they will look at providing a shared version of libmysqld 
(currently only a static version is provided for speed purposes and this 
has caused a little annoyance by the security team in my distro who 
don't want to have to issue updates fro amarok should there be a problem 
in mysql! (which I can't help but agree with!)).
