For what it's worth, the versioning isn't that clear-cut.

The Debian mysql 5.0 client+server+common packages all claim to 
provide mysql 4.1, and indeed I was able to run a hybrid network 
for a while with 4.1 on some Myth boxes and 5.0 on others.  The 
libmysql packages were apparently branched so that programs 
expecting a 4.0 or 4.1 mysql installation use one version and 
programs expecting a mysql 5.0 installation use a different one, 
and that allows unrelated (and incompatible) programs to use the 
same server.  IOW, if Myth wanted MySQL 4.0 it would use the 
library that speaks the 4.1 dialect and the 5.0 server would work 
with that.
