Alright, I went that route. I made a copy of the MySQL entry and
modified it to fit MariaDB. I then made most all of the MariaDB
variables defvaralias-es of the MySQL ones. `sql-comint-mariadb' just
calls into `sql-comint-mysql'. MariaDB is almost no different than MySQL
except for the prompt.

I'm probably not your guy on this one. I'm a *very* casual user, so I'd
honestly have no idea where to even start with that. Sorry. :(
So my first attempt is attached below. Doubtless I've done at least a
handful of things wrong, but I can just fix them as we go.
A couple of things I've been thinking about that might be wrong/need
1) Should we try to support a configuration where the MariaDB and MySQL
configuration options differ (aka making MariaDB variables not mere
aliases for the MySQL ones)? Simple-minded me thinks not, that there
wouldn't really be a point in doing that since MariaDB is supposed to be
able to drop-in replace MySQL. But I'm asking anyways.
2) Will it be problematic that the MariaDB entry doesn't have a
:prompt-length? The MariaDB prompt contains the current database, so
there's no real knowing ahead of time how long the prompt will
be. Looking at how it's used, it appears that query text on continuation
lines will be messed up. Maybe it would be close enough to have
:prompt-length be (length "MariaDB > ") - everything except the
3) To that end, is it okay that my regexp for matching the database name
is pretty loose? I figured on the first pass that being a little
generous with the match criterion is acceptable, but I wouldn't be
surprised if that wasn't good enough for a final solution.
Well, here goes. Hopefully this won't need tons of rework cycles.
