Ambiguity between named_pipe system variable and named_pipe plugin activation option

    Details

      Description

      There seems to be ambiguity between the named_pipe system variable and the option that can enable/disable the named_pipe authentication plugin.

      The system variable enables/disables connections over named pipes:

      https://github.com/MariaDB/server/blob/mariadb-10.4.5/sql/sys_vars.cc#L2407

      https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/server-system-variables/#named_pipe

      The option enables/disables the named_pipe authentication plugin:

      https://github.com/MariaDB/server/blob/mariadb-10.4.5/sql/sql_plugin.cc#L3720

      https://github.com/MariaDB/server/blob/mariadb-10.4.5/sql/sql_plugin.cc#L54

      https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/authentication-plugin-named-pipe/#named_pipe

      If someone configures this in their my.cnf:

      [mariadb]
      ...
      named_pipe=1
      

      Would that refer to the system variable, or the plugin activation option, or would that somehow refer to both?
