when you type, username and passwrod in mysql ..

mysql -uroot -ppassword

then we get bellow screen

Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 6

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.


is there any way to insert some additional comments in their ??

reason : we have 3 mysql instances running in one server, I dont want my user to get confused in mysql console .. so it would be really handly if i can insert some extra information into that console .. like :

"This Mysql is only for Slave2"

please let me know if this is possible.
