Hello, I really appreciate your work a lot .. I'm very new to this project and have 2 simple question ..

1- How does mysql-proxy behave when I start it like this,

mysql-proxy --proxy-backend-addresses= --proxy-read-only-backend-addresses=

with NO lua scripts .. no special configuration of any type .. ?
Does it do a load balancing? which type of load balancing if any?
Does it redirect all read-only connections to the read-only backend and all write connections to the normal backend?
Does it redirect all write connections to the normal backend and load balances the read-only connections between both?

2-Does the users authenticate against the proxy or the backends?
Does the proxy support any kind of authentication itself?

Thanks really a lot for your efforts :)
