New MariaDB package is available to replace old MySQL 5.5.
This package is notably different from Debian's one:
apart from using SMF, all database configuration happens
in SMF service, not in post/pre/install scripts. This is inspired by the Nixsap project.
There is one missed important feature: unix socket authentication. See #198.
