I still don't quite understand when this can be necessary except maybe
for tests. New slave should be restored from backup and thus it will
already have this information in rpl_slave_state. Completely new just
bootstrapped slave makes sense only if master was started completely
new recently. But then slave will start to replay master's binlogs
from the very beginning, right? What am I missing?
