Interesting. I am thinking [1] if I should in Debian dump the whole
libmariadbclient18 package and depend on the the new 'libmariadb2'

In Debian the source package is called mariadb-client-lgpl [2] and the
resulting binariy packages are:

I agree that mariadb-client-native or mariadb-native-client would
'sound' better. Or maybe mariadb-client-2.0 to signify that it is
newer and an improvement over previous 1.8.
