The require SSL/x509/issuer/cipher options of GRANT as in http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/grant.html are great.

However, to prevent inadvertent password disclosure by misconfigured clients, I suggest to be able to serve SSL users on a different port that allows SSL only.

Therefore, they cannot even establish a non-SSL connection to convey their password when they are haunted by murphy.

Secondly, there is no risk that they log-in as non-SSL "internal" (to the firewall) users that are served on e.g. 3306 in parallel.

How to repeat:
just do the default SSL setup

Suggested fix:
This should go together with prevention of password guessing for the non X509 option as suggested in Bug #17318

You can achieve same goal now if setup two different MySQL Proxy: one for SSL connections and another for regular ones, which will use same MySQL server.
