I see that mySQL has SSL support: http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Secure_connections.html
And PHP has some SSL support, but do the mysql() functions work transparently with SSL? It seems there would have to be a flag for this mysql_connect() that turned on SSL. http://us4.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php
I think PHP5 will offer this option. The last parameter of mysql_connect() is a flag for certain options. One of them is a flag to connect with SSL. It used to be listed in the manual, but it was removed. You could also check out the mysqli extension.
