I know UDFs

I've learned how to write MySQL UDF's (User Defined Functions). The interface isn't terrible complicated, tho it's annoying and incomplete in many ways.

I'm going to use the UDF mechanism to shoehorn my AgentX SNMP subagent into 4.0, 4.1, and 5.0, since they don't have the daemon plugin interface that 5.1 has.

But now that I know how to write UDFs, what functions have you always wished you could call from SQL?
