That's what we are currently also trying to do. It was possible for us to use most of the stuff when you change the mode to "planetscale", because planetscale and mariadb both do not support lateral joins. But then we had other problems with using the query builder and one relationships. Small update: we switched to MySQL

Uh ... simply because of the compatibility issues? I think we just have to give up of MariaDB if we want to use Drizzle.
