If you are using replicate-do* statements in replication, with a large number of slaves, modifying the my.cnf file and restarting when you want to add a single table for replication is cumbersome.

There is a similar request to do this on the master side.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Replication replicate-do* commands should be dynamic so this can be done from the command line on slaves.

Same is true of replicate-ignore-* statements.

If needed prior to making these changes it seems fine to stop the slave thread(s).
