Just want to make sure you are aware of this:
I see the branch nick is mysql-5.6-<something>, so maybe this is like this
for legacy reasons, which is fine. But this is basically the wrong fix.
Clearly sometimes in ancient history, someone did not understand Perl
`require` semantics, and ended up with a horrible mess. For example, if
someone ever finds they need `require mtr_misc.pl` in a third file, they
will find it will not work.
Anyway, just a pointer in case you were not aware of a small land-mine
hidden under your feet ;-)
