did you see the site

  Formerly known as SAP DB, MaxDB is the result of a strategic alliance 
between MySQL and SAP to jointly develop and market an enterprise-class 
Open Source database

did you see

I also saw:

"The following MaxDB/MySQL interoperability features are being developed 
and scheduled for release in Q1/2004:
MySQL Proxy, which will enable a user to connect using the MySQL protocol 
to the MaxDB server. Thus, the user will be able to use familiar MySQL 
client tools like mysql, mysqlshow, and mysqldump to both databases."

So one could guess that regular mysql control center may work with it in 
the future.
