We tried to upgrade to MariaDB 10.2.6, which ended in a disaster. The client
library has been renamed from libmysqlclient to libmariadb and it has seen
structural changes for data types. Programs fail to link or - if they do
link - crash or misbehave, including data corruption.

I do not see any way to upgrade any time soon. IMHO data structures have to
be made opaque in favor of accessing data via functions.

OpenSSL suffered a similar problem, which has been solved with version 1.1.0.
MariaDB upstream would have to do something similar.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
