Bug Description

This is not a bug report but more a TODO item.

Based on this blog post it should be possible to implement leader election on top of MySQL. It only makes sense in the case of clustered mysql (i.e galera).

I might give it a try in a couple of weeks.

In most drivers we do that by running a race of "who is going to acquire the lock first" and try to grab it from time to time. This should be pretty easy to do with the current MySQL lock support we have in tooz.
