+I would like to add support for MySQL/MariaDB and I have some questions about it.
+I suppose the nicest way to do it would be to use some haskell binding and to
+connect directly to the server from propellor. However, this would add a
+dependency to build it. Is it acceptable?
+Another solution is to use a command line client and parse its output, but the
+SQL syntax is so strange that I fear this will be painful.
+Another question is about password generation as I will need many passwords, I
+would like to generate them using a crypto hash of a secret combined with a
+public part in the propellor config. Do you have a suggestion to compute this
+hash? I think a dependency on a hash library is easier to accept.
