This brings up a question for the Maria dev team-what are your plans, if any, for replication support in MariaDB? In particular, are there any
plans that would affect binlog formats?

So far we don't have any planned or in-development features that would have
an effect on replication or binlog format.  MariaDB's replication is
expected to be the same as MySQL replication.

This is the real world, and pragmatism is expected.
Things are broken in the land of MySQL replication, and thus we should fix it. The fixes are actually available, so why even bother coming up with excuses?

Yep it changes/extends the binlog format. Tough! It's an upgrade; just like any other, a newer server should be able to be a slave to an older master. But this is important stuff! For instance, adding checksums to the binlog prevents a whole load of trouble. Not having it in there since the start (yes SashaP, I know you're guilty - plus all those who reviewed your code at the time) is a 10 year embarassment. Let's get it right, now, shall we?
