Thanks for the feedback, everyone. The point about the difficulty of
getting MariaDb to play nice with MySQL is a useful tidbit, but wouldn't
come into play here. I had seen lots of prior traffic about Postgres,
but since I already know how to work with MySQL (and I have enough other
stuff that I need to get up to speed on), I'll skip adding yet another
piece of software that I would have to learn!
