The exception says that the MySQL client code can be combined with
any code licensed under one of a laundry-list of FLOSS licenses.
However, it does not require that the resulting code be so licensed.
Thus, you could have component A licensed under the BSD license
(which does *not* require derivative works to be made available in
source form) combined with your libraries and the result delivered
in binary form only.  Presumably this is not what you want.

I have sent this both direct to you and to the list.

'Tis the Linux rebellion / Let coders take their place,
The Linux-nationale / Shall Microsoft outpace,
We can write better programs / Our CPUs won't stall,
So raise the penguin banner of / The Linux-nationale.
