currently mysqlbinlog has an option that lets you specific the --local-load directory input to place load data infile files.

this is a feature request to have an option that will disable creating those SQL_LOAD_MB* files completely.  if one is simply preprocessing or auditing the binary logs, just the statements are needed, and not the actual data files.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
add an option to disable the creating of SQL_LOAD_MB* files when a load data event is seen.
