Combine MySQL databases ignoring keys

I would like to do something like this;

on server1; mysqldump mysql > db1.sql
on server2; mysqldump mysql > db2.sql

on server3 (new server);

mysql –force mysql < db1.sql
mysql –force mysql < db2.sql which should give me db1.sql users root etc but it should combination of the users from db1 + db2, so for instance; db1.sql => users{root,a,b,c}
db2.sql => users{root,a,d,e}

on server3 I want to see;


Ofcourse that doesn’t work, as you get duplicate key messages on all double users.

So ofcourse I wrote something to fix that;

I first did;

mysql mysql < db1.sql
mysql mysqlold < db2.sql

mysql_connect("localhost", "", "");

$q = mysql_query("select * from mysqlold.user");
while ($r = mysql_fetch_row($q)) {
$q1 = mysql_query("select * from mysql.user where User='".$r[1]."'");
if (mysql_num_rows($q1)) {
foreach($r as $r1) {
if ($s) $s.=",";
$qry = "insert into mysql.user values ($s)";

Ofcourse, writing everything yourself was again much faster than searching the solution in the MySQL manual or on Google.
