Yes, with this patch applied to the frontend (the backend does not need this
patch, it just needs to be SVN from a month or so ago), it will discover
available backends and prompt the user to choose one.  No editing mysql.txt

The only thing about this patch is the GUI needs work.  It's fully
functional, but looks bad.  Also, I've been told that it may have issues
working with a remote (something about not having a default button... I
don't remember the details).
