Description:
It would be nice if mysqld and other mysql programs had an option to skip parsing of /etc/mysql/my.cnf .

This is very needed since I have a program that launches a dedicted mysqld, and mysqld chuid's to  another user if root, and I don't want it to. And it can be avoided if I can skip parsing of the /etc/mysql/my.cnf as far as I understand.

How to repeat:
mysqld

The --no-defaults option exists for this.
