Please add the ability to turn on binary logging in a running server.  This would help those who need to avoid downtime when all they want to do is start binary logging.  There are also times when things should not be logged and it may not be appropriate to shut down a running server just so a statement can be executed without being logged.

See description.

if you want to skip a single statement, then this will help you:

set sql_log_bin=0;
alter table t1 engine=innodb;
set sql_log_bin=1;
