I did manage to 'hack it' and actually got all the databases working again, but
I definitely prefer the firebird methods. Being able to isolate each database in
a single file is much more sensible. I will have a read though if I get 5
minutes. I got the impression that a number of files are involved in each mysql
database, with key elements common to the engine rather than the 'data'? And
user login is an utter pain :(
