There's only one difference that comes to my mind.

Oracle-MySQL cleartext plugin is integral part of the client library,
it's statically compiled into it. In MariaDB it's a separate plugin -
which is loaded automatically on demand, but you still need to make sure
you set the plugin-dir path correctly.

There's nothing else I can think of, our test suite verifies that
cleartext plugin exists and that it actually works, so I don't think
we've broken it somehow.
