10.x compatibility and separate namespace
since 10.x won't be compatible with mysql in every aspect any more, I'm
wondering if there happen to be any plans to move all compatibility
left-overs (client binary names, client library name, daemon binary
name, etc.). Are there any such ideas?
I understand that we would lose the compatibility for any later (keeping
original names was mentioned in  as a MUST for compatibility), but
when keeping the original names, it could become tricky to say which
tools are compatible and which not any more in mariadb 10+. How this
information will be provided actually? How to get users informed
properly, which tools are not compatible any more?
And a bit another POV -- is the incompatibility in 10.x strictly limited
to the server only (so client side will stay compatible for anytime later)?
