Yeah - [bugs.mysql.com/] (bugs.mysql.com) is where you'd put in such a request. They're not the most responsive -- I've watched hardcore bugs linger for 2-3 years... :)

comment How to Log IP Address for Inbound Connections in MySQL
While MySQL is much more feature-rich than it was in its pre-5.x days, it is still a pretty bare-bones RDBMS compared to Oracle, MS SQL, DB2, etc. Generally, the skill-sets of a senior-level MySQL DBA include Linux and networking. Generally, the first thing to do when looking trying to do something with MySQL is search the Internet for solutions (ie: Open source or proprietary software, or one-off scripts). You'll find that a basic knowledge of Bash-scripting is beneficial.

Thanks for taking the time to post the details of your present findings. Do you see this as something different than what [Galera](www.codership.com) has already done with Galera Load Balancer / Galera Cluster? I am presently evaluating Percona XtraDB Cluster, which uses Galera's libraries.
