By writing to the European Commission (EC) you can support this cause and help secure the future development of the product MySQL as an Open Source project.

This is the post by the creator of MySQL:

mysqld_multi(1) 						  MySQL database						   mysqld_multi(1)

mysqld_multi - is meant for managing several mysqld processes running in different UNIX sockets and TCP/IP ports. USAGE
mysqld_multi [OPTIONS] {start|stop|report} [GNR,GNR,GNR...] SYNOPSIS
mysqld_multi [--config-file=...] [--example] [--help] [--log=...] [--mysqladmin=...] [--mysqld=...] [--no-log] [--password=...] [--tcp-ip] [--user=...] [--version] DESCRIPTION
mysqld_multi --config-file=... Alternative config file. NOTE: This will not affect this program's own options (group [mysqld_multi]), but only groups [mysqld#]. Without this option everything will be searched from the ordinary my.cnf file. --example Give an example of a config file. --help Print this help and exit. --log=... Log file. Full path to and the name for the log file. NOTE: If the file exists, everything will be appended. --mysqladmin=... mysqladmin binary to be used for a server shutdown. --mysqld=... mysqld binary to be used. Note that you can give mysqld_safe to this option also. The options are passed to mysqld. Just make sure you have mysqld in your environment variable PATH or fix mysqld_safe. --no-log Print to stdout instead of the log file. By default the log file is turned on. --password=... Password for user for mysqladmin. --tcp-ip Connect to the MySQL server(s) via the TCP/IP port instead of the UNIX socket. This affects stopping and reporting. If a socket file is missing, the server may still be running, but can be accessed only via the TCP/IP port. By default connecting is done via the UNIX socket. --user=... MySQL user for mysqladmin. --version Print the version number and exit. NOTE
