Bugzilla -> p5-Mysql dependency?

devel/bugzilla has a p5-Mysql dependency, which I think can be
replaced with a DBD::Mysql dependency

Bugilla's RUN_DEPENDS is using ``${SITE_PERL}/${PERL_ARCH}/Mysql.pm'' 
as a dependency, and if it's missing tries to install
databases/p5-Mysql. p5-Mysql seems to only work for mysql 3.x which
means that those of us using mysql4+ (I'm currently using 4.1) are
stuck with DBD::MySQL.

I'm wondering can bugzilla's dependency on this be replaced with a
dependency on the p5-DBD-mysql modules which seem to be much better
supported across different mysql versions (3, 4, 4.1 and 5)

I know p5-Mysql is supposedly a more complete version, but is there
any aspect of bugzilla that uses the extra features p5-Mysql

Any insights would be grateful...
