I have a product that I will soon be selling that is currently using SQL Server 2000.  I would like to convert to MySQL using the new Stored Procedures but I am unable to do this because MySQL does not support encrypting Stored Procedures the way SQL Server can.  I need to be able to protect intellectual assets.  Could you please add this feature.  Thanks

How to repeat:

Thank you for a useful feature request. Yes, some kind of encryption (or "wrapping", in Oracle terms) may be useful to protect the source code of stored procedures.

So this one links to 19516 and that one links to this one....but is there any progress on this?

Would be a useful feature to have in my upcoming project.
