I bet the client will have no problems with mysql 5.0, so this seems a
good solution to me.

And adding a php4-mysql3 port is not trivial and I'm against it since
MySQL 3.23 is unsupported. If dotproject *must* depends on mysql 3.23 it
has to be marked NO_PACKAGE, otherwise the above (temporary, until the
sql scripts will be updated) solution is ok.
