yes, i'll do so, problem is that i didn't get any testing, so i need to put it 
into core/release to get more testing.

if mariadb doesn't work, we can easily switch back by just rebuilding mysql 
and dropping mariadb for that moment.

also, i tested with amarok among others, without a problem

This is the up-coming 5.5 branch, which my plan is to keep testing as we go 
along to mga2

I also have good contacts with upstream about this.

i'll send a new thread on this, but it's not a final decision, it's nothing 
more than just a way to get more testing so we can decide to opt-out or not.
