mythtv cannot be used with mariadb-server

Bug Description

MythTV (especially mythtv-database) seem to require MySQL as database backend. While being fully compatible, MariaDB seems not to be an option for the current package.
On my system, installing mythtv would uninstall the MariaDB packages and instead install the MySQL suite. Which for sure is not what I want.

I'm running Ubuntu 15.10, apt-cache policy for mythtv-backend is

  Installiert: (keine)
  Installationskandidat: 2:0.27.1+fixes.20140624.aa822f5-0ubuntu6
     2:0.27.1+fixes.20140624.aa822f5-0ubuntu6 0
        500 wily/multiverse amd64 Packages

Could someone of the package maintainers update the dependencies so that mythtv-database accepts also MariaDB as backend? Or am I missing something here?
