There is no option I can use to set the default login path. I could use 'client' as login path, but I would like to be able to use a more appropriate name like prod, local55 or dev08.

How to repeat:
Create a login path named 'local57':
mysql_config_editor set --login-path=local57 --user=msandbox -p

Now try to set it as default:
cat > ~/.my.cnf << EOF

prompt="mysql [\d] > "

Thank you for your reasonable feature request.

One possible workaround is to use suffixes, e.g:

d:\ade\git\mysql-5.7\bld\mysql-test>..\client\Debug\mysql_config_editor.exe set --login-path=client.suf --host=foo --user=bar

d:\ade\git\mysql-5.7\bld\mysql-test>..\client\Debug\mysql_config_editor.exe print --all
user = bar
host = foo

d:\ade\git\mysql-5.7\bld\mysql-test>..\client\Debug\mysql --defaults-group-suffix=.suf
ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host 'foo' (2)
