explain mode

Hi,
I hope this is the right forum to make a suggestion to the mysql developers.
I often write programs doing lengthy series of queries and using the mysql shell.
During development, I like to see the 'explain' results prepended to every query.
In order to do this, I had to write a simple parser to extract the select part of the queries etc etc.
This solution mostly works, but it is not particularly pretty.
I'd prefer using a session environment variable to toggle an 'explain mode'.
Is this anything the mysql developers have considered, or are there already better ways to achieve this?

Cheers!

YK
