Hey guys,

MySQL. The `mysql` package doesn't build with the following error

    setup.exe: The program mysql_config is required but it could not be

I've found a related GitHub issue (https://github.com/bos/mysql/issues/3),
but there doesn't seem to be any solution.

Is there anyone who's successfully running using Haskell and MySQL on
Windows? I've also tried `hdbc-mysql` and `mysql-simple`, but they both
depend on the `mysql` package, so that didn't really help. I can't really
use a different database, or Linux.

Thanks for any tips,
