View as plain text  
I didn't mean for just this instance and this specific AES option (heck, I
don't even use AES at all ;-), I'm just saying that anywhere within the
mySQL .h files that has an option that someone may wish to edit in a
practical scenario, should be changeable via the my.cnf file instead/in
addition to. I appreciate you're taking the time to consider this. I think
it just makes good logical sense too. The less people have to muck with
compiling, the less chance of problems they'll have.
