We've managed to reproduce it now. This is currently only an issue for two  
pacakges: mysqltuner and mysqludf_xql. If the user doesn't have MySQL or  
MariaDB installed, MySQL is chosen. If one of the servers are already  
installed, it is not replaced.

Please log this in the package review. Let's proceed with the rest of the  
review and look at renaming as a separate issue later.
