No concerns that I'm aware of, I just intended to convey that I wasn't doing 
it just to be different or because of some partisan belief that Maria was in 
some way better than MySQL. In other words I don't share my distros stance 
that MySQL suddenly became tainted when Oracle took over and that Maria, the 
exact same code, is better simply because it's not MySQL.
