You can skip it, though it won't hurt to run it anyway. Those are just
there in case you happened to have started up the frontend already
before copying.

One thing that isn't covered by my SQL is your playback profile. The
currently selected profile may or may not be in the settings table
(I'm not sure), but the definitions of the profiles are definitely not
in any of those tables. They are in the displayprofiles and
displayprofilegroups tables. Copying those over is a bit more tricky.

It looks like the mythweather settings are also stored in their own tables.
