Relevant PRs: ports/58589 and ports/58479.

msql2 *is* old and should have been retired long ago, but I needed it
for a client's c.1995 web application; msql3 would not work. I
personally don't use it. If there is interest in msql3, I'd be willing
to take a look at doing the port. Keep in mind that msql's "free"
license prohibits commercial use, AFAIK, and the latest version on the
Huges site is close to a year old, now (Jan 14, 2003). So, I'll happily
port it only if someone tells me they're actually going to use it. :-)
