The standard MySQL command-line clients (mysql, mysqldump, mysqladmin, etc.) leverage libmysql's capabilities to set connection attributes as of 5.6.  However, there is no option to allow users to pass custom key:value pairs that would be useful in their environment.  For example, letting a nightly batch job include --connection_attributes=job:nightly_billing

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Implement a common command-line option that accepts user-specified connection attributes.
