I discussed with serg on IRC. Probably it is fine if we just include the .so
in /usr/lib/mysql/plugin/ and the user can issue INSTALL PLUGIN as needed.

Then we just need to ensure that oqgraph_engine.so is available in

Can you or Peter come up with a patch to move /usr/lib/mysql/plugin from
libmariadbclient-dev (which is kind of a strange package for that anyway) to
maraidb-server-5.1? Not sure how to do this without breaking stuff.

And a similar patch for .rpm (I did not understand the .spec well enough to
see how the plugin directory is handled)?
