To handle quite a lot of services and application, I developped a software to handle the connections.

It's very useful to have commandline-options to open a connection. (See: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/workbench/en/wb-launching-linux.html and http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=70134)

But it is not possible to give a password and connect with this password.

The old query browser was able to do that. See: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=7844

As I manage the connection in my own tool, it would be much easier to do that with an additional commandline-parameter

How to repeat:
MySQLWorkbench.exe -query readuser@mysqlserver.com:3306

Suggested fix:
MySQLWorkbench.exe -query readuser:secretpassword@mysqlserver.com:3306
