I wish it was that simple. I'm afraid this is not to be solved on the database 
level alone. Some rows in the variable table might count for content, others 
for configuration. CCK, aka the-other-part-of-core, would be a impossible to 
dissect based on post-mortem DB analysis. The menu system can be argued 
about, etc.
