OSX How To: Uninstall native MySQL and install MariaDB via Homebrew

This is a short overview on how to completely remove any old mysql server installs in OSX and upgrade to MariaDB without conflicts. Things can get a bit weird when you have various old installs of MySQL server floating around, and utilizing homebrew to install and upgrade MariaDB as a drop in replacement for MySQL has worked well, especially if you're used to managing MySQL installs via yum in linux.
