Actually, I did, but the documentation isn't accurate for newer versions of 
mysqldump. See the subject " Getting database info to a new backend" for that 

But it doesn't negate the point that it'd be nice to know why we do things, 
rather than just how.

wiki? Where? I didn't see that on the mythtv website. Maybe mutiple, targeted 
wikis might work better.
