They've just traditionally been cautious/slow about version upgrades. I'd prefer to be on 4.1 or later, but everything else is great and I'm sure they'll get there eventually.

Note that Karoly's announcement was about dropping Mysql 4.0 support for 
Drupal _6_. We haven't released Drupal 5 yet, so my guess is that Drupal 
6 won't be released untill next summer. That's plenty of time for 
providers to upgrade mysql after the free support stops at the end of 
this year.
