If I'm following you correctly;
Wouldn't just filing a pr(1) (
against the port, with your proposed patch, do it?

i don't think that even a patch would help at all, as the maintainer 
closed a PR already with "working as intended" reply. Just can't 
understand how having runtime module compiled and loaded for toy... - 
sorry - mysql is "as intended" for us running something else as the 
favoured datastore.
