MYSQL user permissions to only run stored procedures

I would like to setup my database so specified users can only run stored procedures.  I don't want them to be able to log into the db with a gui and be able to write queries or edit the tables directly.  Also I don't want them to be able to alter the stored procedures.  Is this possible?

Thanks

I have not tested it but you can try the following... MySQL 5.1.48 and later should work with this.

Create a new database user and gave him permission to execute only one command: EXECUTE.
mysql> GRANT EXECUTE
-> ON database.*
-> TO username@localhost
-> IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
