I'm somewhat amazed at the fact that everyone so far has gone completely
wild with SSH to solve this problem.

Has anyone made the OP aware that MySQL *does* in fact support SSL
natively, and that it can be used between client and server, as well as
between master and slave (for replication)?

The SSH tunnelling idea is fine if you want to access a MySQL server
behind a firewall or on a private network, but I'm a bit confused as to
why everyone's going to great lengths to use SSH to accomplish something
MySQL has support for natively.

Please clue me in.  :-)
