Sorry I'm taking so long to answer, busy at work.

There's little chance I can work on it soon. I'm trying to fix Rasqal
bugs now. See http://librdf.org/rasqal/RELEASE.html for progress.
To add something new to the storage API, you need to update
the storage factory (e.g. new method void* get_connection_handle(...) )
and then reflect that in the API itself with a new function
librdf_storage_get_connection_handle(...) that calls the
factory->get_connection_handle if it's not NULL.
Then go to the mysql storage code librdf_storage_mysql, implement
a new function librdf_storage_mysql_get_connection_handle and
register it with the storage factory when the mysql store starts up.
The storage parameters part is easier since there's code in the mysql
startup that reads parameters now, you could use that to switch
the table type. Would need to paramterise the table create strings
with that. [Aside, all this stuff should be more programmed, rather
than fixed strings].
