[TxMt] MySQL queries in TM (simple attempts thus far)

hi Mats,
Well I'm just fooling around at present (and I'm hardly a unix geek!)...
The key is to have a MySQL user defined on localhost w/o a password and 
then grant selected privileges. Obviously you have to be careful here 
with regards to security and what you permit :)

The output is a bit messy but I've done a few simple commands e.g. the 
following. I haven't had time yet to explore more complex SELECT 
queries. But presumably one could wrap the whole thing up in macros to 
tidy it up. (I use macros extensively to convert DESCRIBE queries into 
various other queries by parsing out the field names.)

Note that after the mysql dengue -e "YOUR QUERY HERE" you hit ctrl-R of 
course ;)

Hope this helps. No doubt others have found a more elegant approach!
Cheers and thanks for your interest.
