This should be optional. Personally I don't want any more complexity in
ommysql, as I'm trying to use this for relatively important production
1) I don't like configuration file dependencies. Especially since our
DBA handles my.cnf and I handle rsyslog configuration, I think it's bad
to have changes to an unrelated config file (my.cnf) effect another
2) The patch pre-configure options (TCP, cert validation, secure
authentication) make no sense if MySQL is running on localhost.
Honestly, I didn't even want a password for the MySQL user as needed in
3) Why is it assumed that something present in the global /etc/my.cnf is
applicable to rsyslog?
Just my two cents.
