Is still someone using the mysql (not mysqli)extension?

While looking into the state of the php 7.3 release, I noticed php is still build --with-mylsql which will not work for php 7.3
Actually every project should either use PDO or the mysqli extension, so I wonder if there are still users, who use the old and now deprecated mysql extension.

I strongly recommend that using the mysqli or pdo_mysql extension.

The mysql extesnion has been removed since php-7.0 version now.

You can look at the warning message on official PHP site :).
