The debian package says that be default the mysql server is installed with 
networking disabled.  /etc/my.cnf file has a paramerter for [mysqld] of 
bind-address =

I am running mysqld on a machine with 3 interfaces (ie the loopback) (my lan interface) (my wan interface)

I am trying to use it to support mythtv-backend so this means I need to change 
it so mysql server listens on the loopback and on the lan interface.  How?

The documentation for this parameter seems sparse. mysql documentation just 
bind-address=IP  the IP address to bind to.

No mention of what the default is if its not there.

Mythtv setup doesn't even mention it.

I am sure a requirement to bind to a loopback address and one other is a 
common requirement.  How do you do it?
