Yes, I guess.
It'll be consistent with what we do with the server.

Of course, if you also have a solution how to reduce the number of
packages, that'd be perfect :)

Hmm, how about that?
We rename the following packages to remove "-10.1" at the end.

  mariadb-connect-engine-10.1
  mariadb-oqgraph-engine-10.1
  mariadb-cracklib-password-check-10.1
  mariadb-gssapi-server-10.1
  mariadb-gssapi-client-10.1
  mariadb-backup-10.1

This way the server package will specify the version (either
"mariadb-server-10.1" for 10.1 or "mariadb-server" for the latest)
and everything else will follow.

Looks logical and doesn't increase the number of packages (!!!).
But I need to try whether it'll actually work in Debian :)
