I was trying to avoid delving into the guts of that database, as it's 
not exactly elegant and is far from risk free. Oh well.

Do most people just go through the setup menus for each frontend and 
make all the same changes?


As, sorry, for more discussion in the archives, including some of the 
"likely" type regards whether this should be a GUI thing or a script 
thing. Anyway, the bash/sql hack that was posted should do the job 
rather nicely, at least for now.
