 Oh, ''that's'' what #28133 says. I missed that. You're right, that's
 probably fine; let's not consider that a duplicate after all.

 For mysql5 which does this, it causes some odd issues... for example
 running "mysql_upgrade5" (where PATH contains /opt/local/bin but not the
 long path to the real "mysql_upgrade"), doesn't work, as it expects to
 then find "mysql" in PATH as well (when in fact only "mysql5" is in PATH
 in this case); see #20949.
