The difference is that PBXT is a general purpose storage engine, while
OQGraph is a specialized one. If a new user will try to use it as a
general purpose engine and hit the spot where OQGraph does not perform
well, he will be annoyed and dissapointed with both OQGraph and MariaDB.
On the other hand, if somebody needs the functionality of OQGraph - what
makes the engine special - he can issue one INSTALL PLUGIN, it is not
In other words, I think that having it enabled by default will make the
adopton easier, indeed, but it is not the kind of adoption you wanted to
have for OQGraph - it's something that ends in a few minutes, leaves a
