Yes, MariaDB is a lot closer to MySQL and is the better project (it's a 
drop in replacement). I meant I'd look into Drizzle and see if I could 
maintain it. I've been using PMA since I was like 14, it's the least I 
can do, it gives me an excuse to start learning the internals anyway. 
Leave it with me.
