WB 6.0 allows starting/stopping of *services*, but not execution of arbitrary startup/stop commands.  For example, on Windows, one can only specify the Windows Service Name to start or stop, but I would like to specify a start command like:

D:\path\to\mysqld.exe --no-defaults --port=3307 --console

and/or a shutdown command of:

D:\path\to\mysqladmin.exe --uroot -P3307 shutdown

It might be nice if there were also substitution options for connection configuration options stored by WB:

D:\path\to\mysqld.exe --no-defaults --port={$port} --console

D:\path\to\mysqladmin.exe --u{$user} -P{$port} -p{$password} shutdown

How to repeat:
Try to start/stop MySQL instances using arbitrary commands.

Suggested fix:
See above.
