There are couple of use cases of parsing binary logs from GTID. At least following use cases can be considered.

1. --find-binlog-by-gtid=$GTID
- Input: GTID, multiple binlog files
- Output: Starting binlog filename and pos

2. --start-gtid=$GTID
- Input: GTID, multiple binlog files
- Output: all binary log events from the GTID

For example, when we want to analyze slaves' binary logs (based on master's file/pos and GTID), master file/pos are not correlated to slaves' file/pos so we need GTID to find the right position.

Apparently this should not be done in O(N), but implementation should be easy once http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=68386 is fixed.

How to repeat:

The man page now lists this as synopsis:
mysqlbinlog [options] log_file ...

I think log_file should not be required when using:
--exclude-gtids '<gtids>'
