In this case, I would be even happy if the enforcer was linked to both
libraries at the same time, and the choice of database backend would be
configurable. OpenDNSSEC is heavyweight daemon, so it's not expected to
run in constrained environment, thus pulling one extra database library
(either libmariadb or libsqlite3) poses no problem.

Adding pluggable database libraries would be nice, but I don't think the
usefulness in this case outweights the additional complexity.
