Apple removes MySQL support from Lion Server
Apple has removed access to a built-in MySQL installation in the new Lion Server, released last week, and replaced it with PostgreSQL -- along with dropping a handful of other tools previously supported under Snow Leopard Server, which has caused some server admins much consternation, according to posts on Apple's support forums. Users do still have multiple options to use MySQL, however....

While I don't understand that decision, I'll have to have faith that they had a good reason for this. For those that runs OS X Server (or just happen to know the answer), can MySQL be easily installed and used with the config tools?
EDIT: It would truly seem to be because Oracle now controls MySQL that Apple moved away from it. This isn't really all that surprising I suppose.
