Sprints

Whiteboard

Implement this for the Percona plugin, confirm with MariaDB that they want this disabled for their release.
It is possible to do user name mapping through a PAM module instead of user authentication string. In many cases this is actually better solution. Research https://github.com/datenwolf/pam_propperpwnam as a PAM module that is able to perform such mapping and document it.
