Description:
skip_grant_table is not listed in show variables. This is a security issue because it cannot be monitored (remotely).

How to repeat:
show variables like 'skip_%';
+-----------------------+-------+
| Variable_name         | Value |
+-----------------------+-------+
| skip_external_locking | ON    |
| skip_networking       | ON    |
| skip_show_database    | OFF   |
+-----------------------+-------+

Suggested fix:
add skip_grant_tables to show variables list.
