Yes, I guess.
It'll be consistent with what we do with the server.
Of course, if you also have a solution how to reduce the number of
packages, that'd be perfect :)
Hmm, how about that?
We rename the following packages to remove "-10.1" at the end.
This way the server package will specify the version (either
"mariadb-server-10.1" for 10.1 or "mariadb-server" for the latest)
and everything else will follow.
Looks logical and doesn't increase the number of packages (!!!).
But I need to try whether it'll actually work in Debian :)
