We could also have something like "See also", say, a text like "For
MariaDB extensions to this syntax ..." or "MariaDB related information ..."
and links to the relevant pages. In a slug on top of the page or in the
sidebar. Somewhere that is clearly distinct from the book text and
doesn't blend with it, but still allows readers to get to the MariaDB
pages quickly.
