Description:
I believe 5.1 is implementing a feature where it is possible define stored procedures to be called in multi-master replication's conflict resolution.

There are other opportunities where this automatically calling SPs could be quite beneficial.  One example noted was in a closed source application using MySQL.  It is difficult to change some settings (such as the character set),  but if a SP was called, it could work around this (credit: Arjen).

Another example is for shutdown and start up functions (although this could be emulated via specific scripts);

Use a 'settings' table that is heap engine based.  On successful shutdown, copy the data back to a MyISAM table.  On start up, load it back into the heap table.

How to repeat:
I'm sure there are a number of other events which could benefit from being able to define procedures to handle.

Thank you for a reasonable feature request. Yes, something similar to Oracle's triggers on system events (like user login and shutdown) will be really useful.
