Comment (by Rarst):

 > ext-mysql is still required by core. It should be listed in require
 until core no longer requires it out of the box

 `require` is a hard requirement, Composer will error on build if any of
 the requirements cannot be satisfied. I think `ext-mysql` as such hard
 requirement unnecessarily couples core package to presence of extension,
 while core does have very viable support for swappable database layer.

 Hypothetically in environment where `ext-mysql` cannot be installed
 (hosting restriction for example) this will completely prevent core
 package from working.

 > There *are* some things that cannot be done via streams/sockets as well.

 Any of such things actually exposed in HTTP API? Just curious. I don't
 think I ever did anything with API that was sensitive to the engine used.
