mysqlbinlog cannot read from stdin.

This would be useful to fix as then you could zcat/bzcat old binlogs to view them.

How to repeat:
$ /usr/local/mysql5-port/bin/mysqlbinlog - < kennedy-bin.000001
/*!40019 SET @@session.max_insert_delayed_threads=0*/;

mysqlbinlog will now just sit there waiting for input.

Suggested fix:
There is the following comment in client/mysqlbinlog.cc (about line 1119)
" // reading from stdin; TODO: check that it works"
It doesn't.

  Bug#7853 (mysqlbinlog does not accept input from stdin)
    The utility 'mysqlbinlog' now accepts input from stdin. It can 
    now be used to read the output from, e.g., 'zcat' or other utility.
