Many folks don't know about MySQL _at all_, and some aspects of WP
management still require using a tool like phpMyAdmin.

Asking them to find the "random string of letters" makes it
time-consuming for us to provide clear instructions on how to gain
access to their database.

What if I install three blogs, each with a randomly generated prefix.
How will I know which one is the one I want to modify?
