I'm wondering what we should call the database style of the people who  
wrote Wordpress, and decided that you should:

1. Put the site domain and document_root into serialised data in a  
single db field, making it really hard to switch domains
2. Hard-code table names into fields in other tables, making it really  
hard to change the db prefix.
