We always have critical stuff working on mysql.

of course i can wait some more, however, it's because people don't test it, 
that i'm wanting to test in core/release.

I believe mikala said to his padawan that when i submit mariadb to 
core/release that he should see if akonadi and/or amarok can build on it.

this is not to say that i don't have done any local testing of course... but 
core/updates_testing is just not used at all... it's been 3 weeks.

my point is that we can submit mariadb so that it does get proper testing 
before alpha2.

I believe if it isn't workable, we can always delete mariadb and resubmit 
mysql? right?


PS: i didn't test everything, but the things i did test, did not have 
issues... so i don't think this is truly that problematic.
