I haven't tried the code removal that was suggested up-thread, but
that seems like a moot point right now, doesn't it?  I think that as
long as the help text and the mc.sql script give reasonable defaults
most users aren't going to notice.

Daniel, when using TCP/IP:3306 versus localhost:0, are we expecting
that it's going to be _that_ much slower?  We already tell users that
they don't need to run MySQL on the same host as the backend database,
and it's not like the mailing lists have been full of people
complaining and the root cause coming down to "It's because you're not
running MySQL on the localhost..."
