Suggestion from a student of Kaj's in UK May '01:

We have planed to do this when mysqld notices that something really
critical has happened (like running out of disk space).

Notes by Brian:

This can be accomplished through "CREATE EVENT" and a stored procedure and
monitoring. It though may be useful to create "triggers" of sorts on this type
of event.
