Currently, when using barracuda, if a user wants row_format=compressed and a key_block_size other than 8k, they have to specify it for each new table.

Would like to be able to set system defaults for all new tables.  Eg, have default_row_format and a default_key_block_size variables.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
add system variables
