[HyperDB] Using mysql replication

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your reply.

We're now using the latest version of HyperDB with WordPress 2.2. That
works fine.

However, the current implementation does a mysql_select_db / Init DB for
each query @ r. 455-456.

If we strip these checks from the if statement, everything still works
as expected.
Is there any reason to keep this in the code?

Thanks in advance,

	Wouter Westendorp

SET NAMES is now in db_connect. Update HyperDB to the latest version.
