In another post, Dries said he thought it was worth it, so I guess we're 
outvoted. ;)

I guess he's right that it would be nice to have the choice. If it would 
work on my system, I wouldn't mind having the db created just to make test 
sites easier. I'm curious, though, is there anyone out there on shared 
hosting that this would work for? Both A Small Orange and Site5 that I've 
been on have a special interface for creating databases. I can't even create 
a new one through SQLYog.
