Isaac has answered this before.  It won't happen, if I remember correctly, 
cause a frontend doesn't need to talk to a sql server.  It only needs to know 
what backend to use.  The backend needs to know what its sql server is, 

Furthermore, mysql.txt may not even be on the same machine as the frontend.
