Yes, and I intend to modify my backup script to do exactly that. But I
can't continuously run mysqldump, so there will always be updates that
are missed if I can't use the binary directly.

Fortunately, death of a motherboard is fairly rare :-)

Thank you, knowing the exact script name will make it much easier to
find it. Since I now know how to rebuild the database, and the system is
not yet running in production to make any further updates to it, I have
nothing to lose by giving it a shot.
