The MariaDB feature includes using provides/obsoletes on the "mysql"
names, so the transition should be automatic for most packages.
with provides/obsoletes it would be IMPOSSIBLE to install mysql
because ANY update to the mariadb package would replace it
if this would be true the decision could only made by people
never in their life built RPM SPEC-files with Provides/Obsoletes
to replace installed packages
was used by me two days ago for my private dovecot-builds to
no longer spilt out "dovecot-mysql" to a seperate apckage as
the fedora one does
