Next Drizzle plugin, configuration
The errmsg plugin interface is almost done.

The next plugin interface will be fairly more fraught, but useful. Making the configuration interface as a plugin.

This means that instead of keeping the configuration in the /etc/my.cnf and/or /etc/drizzle.cnf, the configuration variables could be kept in the Gnome registry, or in LDAP, or via lookups in some online configuration database server.

This would make managing and configuring huge arrays of Drizzle servers much much easier.

yay! It's nice to have options, and at the very least it's nice to be able to reference them differently. Heck, I'll take a CSV table too. :) Being able to change config variables dynamically is nice, but having it be able to STICK across restarts is nice too.

I hadn't thought of that, but yes, it makes sense to make the interface two way, so that when you set the config variable at the command line, it sticks.

I thought I'd mentioned that on the mailing list. Maybe I just was talking to krow about how nice it'd be to have that.
