I think we should compile all the plugin in (but not enable all by
default), at least for now, to make MariaDB as easy to use as
Sounds good, that was the exisitng plan for the 5.1 OurDelta builds
we've been working with.
The hassle was that some engines first objected to getting built in-
tree, including PBXT and FederatedX. So that ate some time.
Later we can consider if we want to have 'mariadb-min, mariadb and
mariadb-max' versions that have different compilation/configure
I don't think that makes sense. Since in 5.1 they're pluggable, we can
later on just build them as a pluggable and people can INSTALL PLUGIN
if they need the particular component. No need for different builds,
that's just confusing (and a heck of a lot more -unnecessary- work) on
the build end.
