Implement user mapping for all authentication plugins in the server

    Details

      Description

      Currently, user mapping is only supported by the PAM authentication plugin, and that functionality is implemented in a PAM module outside of the server.

      Some users would like the server to support some kind of built-in user mapping for all authentication plugins.

      MySQL 5.7 added this via the check_proxy_users system variable, but using PROXY privileges to define user mappings, rather than just privileges for user mappings, is pretty unintuitive. (See MDEV-19428 for more information.)

      Maybe MariaDB should implement user mapping in the server in some other way.
