#61105 new enhancement

mariadb-10.{4,5}: usage of the new mariadb-* names

Description

Maybe not an “enhancement”, but I didn't find a better type. It's more of a question.

The files:

They're the ones used by mysql_select to put the files in ${prefix}/bin, right?

MariaDB is having some name changing going on. From 10.4.6 MariaDB have started to use mariadb-* names. In 10.4 they are symlinks to the mysql_* version, and in 10.5 it the other way around - the mysql_* names are symlinks to the mariadb-* names.

Example: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mysql_upgrade/ (see the dashed info boxes)

Shouldn't the maria-* names be included as well when adding files to ${prefix}/bin? Like, if they're changing their nameing convention, so should we.
