By "a daemon plugin inside mysql" you mean you run in a separate thread
that you started, I suppose.

Technically a daemon plugin does not necessarily have a separate thread,
and, on the other hand, a separate thread can be run by any plugin, not
only daemons.

Anyway, in your own thread you don't have a thd, that's right.

See an example in the plugin/feedback/, in the tree.
