Before you start; We are here at MySQL AB developing a new GUI (not
based on the old mysqlgui) that is based on QT3 and will run on most
platforms. This GUI will have a standard interface that can load
modules on demand.  Instead of writing everything from scratch, would
you like to join us with this?

If not, John can probably mail you some specifications that a nice GUI
should have.

When handing privileges, you should check out the GRANT statement and
use this instead of accessing the tables directly (if possible).
