This package can list, add, modify and remove MySQL server user accounts.

It can connect to the main accounts mysql database of a given MySQL server using PDO with the root account to perform operations with the MySQL server users.

There is one class that abstracts all the attributes and options of each MySQL user permission, like user name, password, privileges, etc..

The main class can perform all sorts of operations with database user records like:

- Load user permissions for a given database and host
- Check if a given user records exist
- Get the hash of a given password
- Create new user records
- Grant or revoke privileges of a given user
- Get user privileges for all databases he has access
- Delete a given user
- Make server reload the latest user privileges

Before an application can access a MySQL database, there must exist at least one user record in a special MySQL database that defines the user name, password, the databases and tables the user can access and the types queries that can be execute on those tables.

This class can perform the necessary operations to manipulate MySQL server user records with the permissions the users need to access the databases on the current server.
