Hi, Stuart.

> Why does the mysql collectd plugin require the replication client grant on *.* to 'collectd'@'localhost' ?

Collectd requires such privilege if it is configured to collect replication process slave status.
This enabled by:

SlaveStats true
SlaveNotifications true

One useful metric is "Seconds_Behind_Master".
