Trying to learn Replication, source code.
Reading book, "Expert MySQL" by Charles Bell.
Chapter 8, "Extending MySQL High Availability" -> page 310, "Extending Replication".
Where we should add new command -> "SQLCOM_STOP_SLAVES" executed on master and causing to STOP IO_THREAD on all slaves.

After adding necessary things into:

Inside sq/sql_cmd.h there is a comment:

  When a command is added here, be sure it's also added in mysqld.cc
  in "struct show_var_st status_vars[]= {" ...

It took me some time to figure out that instead of status_vars[] command should be added into  SHOW_VAR com_status_vars[]=

Also comment indicates struct show_var_st  status_vars[] inside sql/mysqld.cc which is in fact SHOW_VAR status_vars[] -> typedef struct st_mysql_show_var SHOW_VAR(sql/sql_show.h) -> struct st_mysql_show_var {
  const char *name;
  char *value;
  enum enum_mysql_show_type type;

How to repeat:
The main reason for report is replacing comment with new one, to be clear for beginners.

Suggested fix:
Replace comment with:
  When a command is added here, be sure it's also added in mysqld.cc
  in " struct st_mysql_show_var com_status_vars[]= {" ...

I have analyzed your idea and I am also inclined with you that comment should be changed. This is not a great job and it should be done fast.

I see what you are trying to accomplish, but  I would recommend you to look at our Group Replication. When it is announced (which should not happen in a long time), read about is and see if it suits you better then this variant of grouped commands.
