To get things created under MySQL, I'd suggest editing Schema.pm and 
removing the statustext index from the cust_event and cust_bill_event 

Not sure what to do for a proper fix in tree.  The statustext index is 
used in cust_main.pm's retry_realtime method.  Perhaps we need to teach 
DBIx::DBSchema to specify a default length for MySQL indices on text 
columns, or just to support an index length at all so we can pass 
something in.

We could certainly use help keeping the MySQL support current if folks 
are interested in using it.  We had work sponsored not too long ago to 
bring it basically up-to-date but could use assistance with ongoinging 
testing and maintenence.
