Surely Stewart could just add the functionality to the existing software.
FWIW I don't feel comfortable upgrading a running election at any rate and
particularly not to MySQL 5 :)

Lets just fix what we have rather than this upgrade/backport foo. Let's not
use MySQL 5 version yet. I believe James Purser did a patch that may have
fixed this in the current version of MemberDB? Otherwise how much work would
it be to do that rather than to throw a whole new version which changes the
infrastructure on the box. Upgrading MySQL will affect more than MemberDB
so upgrading it shouldn't be a matter of "oh we need the memberdb to email
notifications, and we need mysql 5 to do that" ;)
