OK, I am doing this.  Will post patches soon.

I doubt it will be used very often, but there are small-library
librarians who are their own sysadmins and they do have root access to
mysql, but aren't comfortable using the mysql command line.

But, I suspect this would cause other complications with the config
files needing to be edited after the installer has finished, so it's
probably simplest to leave it out and to add a small setup-mysql-koha
script soon.
