I have to agree with Jonathan, saucy is in a feature freeze for a
reason. That reason is that peoples' time should be spent on testing,
bug fixing, and release oriented activities. James hopefully you can wrap
up what I have not been able to and get MariaDB in front of the Debian
AA's. I'll be quite happy to do an upload with your +1 on the packages.

If we're still dragging our feet getting MariaDB into Debian I'll also
be glad to help you get a temporary ubuntu-only MariaDB package uploaded
to make sure "T" ships with Maria at least unseeded.
