[wp-hackers] List of constants

Ooh! Could it be possible I'm going about something the wrong way? :P
I have multiple WP installations on the same server/same db...different domains...sharing some event data. I have done things the hard way between the two, haven't I? Instead of creating a new wpdb instance, I directly modified the post/postmeta tables to propagate this data from one installation to the other. (Even though I was mildly aware that this wasn't good form, I opted for quick and dirty--never a good idea.)
Anything I would need to keep in mind if creating another instance of wpdb? I already have my code setup as a plugin on one server, with an admin option screen to give the name of the other install's prefix...
Thanks, Otto (and Ozh for the inquiry)!

It's possible you might want to create a new instance of wpdb at some
point and connect it to another set of tables (in the same database).
Constants can't be redefined during runtime. Globals can.
