mysql-5.5 is long EOL, and should be removed.

None of note for our builds, hence using openssl-1.1.1 in our 2019Q4

Mostly lack of those elusive circular tuits on my part, Percona is
much preferred IMO, I try to keep it reasonably updated in our
repository and it works quite well as a cluster, e.g.:

We haven't kept MariaDB as current, but it's popular on other OS and
it would be good if someone was interested in it on our side.

The complicated part is bringing over the changes from our pbulkmulti
branch so that users aren't forced into a single mysqlclient
