Separate users each with their own ~/.mythtv/mysql.txt.  My mythtv
production systems all run as user 'mythtv'.  On my dev machine
and dev slave VM, I run programs as myself.  I don't have
accidental upgrades that way, in fact it's just the opposite.  I
sometime login to a production machine as myself and have to either
log out or su to the mythtv user to connect to the production DB.
