Log Message:
Update to mysql-3.23.35.  Changes in the client library include
API/ABI changes, (backward compatible) changes to the client-server
protocol and bug fixes.

The 3.23 release has several major features that are not present
in previous versions. We have added new table types: MyISAM, a new
ISAM library which is tuned for SQL and supports large files; BDB,
which uses the Berkeley DB library from Sleepycat Software to
implement transaction-safe tables; INNOBASE, which uses the Innobase
database backend to implement transaction-safe tables. The 3.23
release also includes support for database replication between a
master and many slaves, full-text indexing, and much more.

For a detailed list of changes see appendix E of the online
documentation at

The replication code and BerkeleyDB code is still not as tested
and as the rest of the code, so we will probably need to do a couple
of future releases of 3.23 with small fixes for this part of the
code. As long as you don't use these features, you should be quite
safe with MySQL 3.23!

Note that the above doesn't mean that replication or Berkeley DB
doesn't work; We have done a lot of testing of all code, including
replication and BDB without finding any problems. It only means
that not as many users uses this code as the rest of the code and
because of this we are not yet 100 % confident in this code.
