Instead of using the standard "user table password" way of loging in, I would like to see MySQL use Kerberos.

MySQL will still require the username to be entered in the user table (to provide the level of access to delete, insert commands), but the password/authentication will be via Kerberos

This will give the advantage that the users MySQL password will be kept in sync with the users system login password (EG WinXP).
Additionally, once the user has logged into his system he will not be required to login to MySQL (this is done automatically via Kerberos)
