      Description

      Could you add an option where the MySQL server does authentication by the Linux system
      account of the other end of the (local) connection?

      This will only work for local connections, but is very handy. Passwords would no longer
      be needed, making it both more secure and easier.

      In addition to user name/password, the privilege tables should contain a unix_account
      column.
