that's exactly why I suggested doing it with the mysql.txt files.
I'm going to do it that way, because:
1) it's simpler, cleaner, less hacky
2) my database is running on a machine completely
separate from my myth backend and frontend boxes
and is "in production" for other things. :)
it's silly to start it up and stop it when you
just need your application to point to a different
name. you're already using the same disk space, so
you might as well have full-time access to the data.
