You're better off with the trunk version linked from the wiki page, 
anyway--even for those users on 0.23-fixes whose distros provide 
mythconverg_restore.pl, it makes sense to download 
mythconverg_restore.pl to your home directory and use it.  There are 
changes in the trunk version which make restoring a database much easier 
and less likely to break your distro's MySQL permissions configuration.

Therefore, I highly recommend that anyone who's using 
mythconverg_restore.pl download the current one as described 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore .
