i guess most packagers want option 2 here.

i don't think this is a good idea in general and i was of the opinion that the 
diff between migrating mysql 5.5.22 and mariadb 5.5.23 were quite the same...

nonetheless, the package naming difference could have effects on it on a stable 
version, so i concede to this solution.

however, i'll note that mariadb likely contains extra bugfixes, which this 
mysql 5.5.22 will not have.

i guess this is the step where this is more or less decided and some packager 
steps in and does the actual work. any volunteers? perhaps that person can 
also become maintainer of it?
