well, i am using delete/insert-statements since 10 years to maintain
users since you only have to know the tables in the database "mysql"
and use "flush privileges" after changes
DROP USER is the only SINGLE COMMAND
as long as you do not use table/column-privileges there are exactly
two relevant tables: "user" and "db"
