I'm running Myth 0.19 with MySQL 5.0 and it works perfectly, at 
least on Debian boxes.  The Debian MySQL 5.0 libraries are 
backward-compatible with 4.1 clients.

Package: mysql-common
Maintainer: Christian Hammers <ch at debian.org>
Architecture: all
Source: mysql-dfsg-5.0
Version: 5.0.24-1
Replaces: mysql-common-4.1
Provides: mysql-common-4.1
Conflicts: mysql-common-4.1

Package: mysql-server-5.0
Maintainer: Christian Hammers <ch at debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Source: mysql-dfsg-5.0
Version: 5.0.24-1
Replaces: mysql-server (<< 5.0.24-1), mysql-server-4.1
Provides: mysql-server, virtual-mysql-server, mysql-server-4.1

The Debian packages for libqt3-mt-mysql no longer refer to any 
specific MySQL version, and Christian Marillat's Myth-0.19-10 build 
is similarly free of restrictions.

I'll admit that this answer is better than "it's fixed in SVN".

It would probably be best, however, if you simply didn't bother to 
reply to people who want help with older versions rather than 
filling the list with messages saying that you refuse to help them 
because they aren't living on the bleeding edge of instability with 
you.  Please go right ahead and answer questions when someone 
running 0.20-fixes complains that nothing is working, but don't try 
to convince everyone else to break their systems, too.
