Note that the error message is saying QMYSQL3, not Q3MYSQL. QMYSQL3 is
the legacy name for the Qt-MySQL driver--the one that supports MySQL
3.23 and above... :)
(The driver is now just called the QMYSQL driver, but QMYSQL3 still
works--so we haven't had any reason to change the way we're asking for
it--but, TTBOMK, the only reason they changed the legacy name is because
people got confused. Many thought the 3 had to do with Qt, so when Qt4
was released, they asked for the QMYSQL4 driver. And, those who
actually figured out the 3 was talking about MySQL often wondered
whether there was a QMYSQL5 that might have been a better one to use.
So the Qt devs thought it was easier to just drop the 3.)
