Ok, fair point, but MariaDB really goes out of its way to have lots of
them: PBXT, OQGraph engine, Sphinx, Aria...  You won't find these
(unless you contract Percona to provide them for you) in Percona
Server. These are not that commonly used but more niche. But they are
the reason I commonly label MariaDB as "has more stuff".
