Just for the record and not directly related to these packages: a friend 
of mine tested mariadb under production-like load and the results were 
less then satisfactory.
Using mariadb 5.5.27 on a  64bit squeeze led to backtrace in mysql.log + 
restart when using "ALTER" on tables with 3 rows and 4 columns which was 
serving data at 80 Mbps. The log became damaged as well on the second 
attempt of using ALTER.
