I had been against it before, on the basis that the client and server  
ports would install the same binaries--but of course that objection  
was wrong, since there's no need to install them twice if one depends  
on the other.

This looks like a good solution, although I'd suggest that the mysql5  
port get a post-activate message to the effect of "if you want to run  
a mysql5 server on this computer, install mysql5-server too"
