This message and other default data are set up by calling the
wp_install_defaults function, which can be replaced by one of your own
definition.  One way to take advantage of this might be to add an
include statement to your wp-config.php file that evaluates a file, in
which you have defined a wp_install_defaults function that uses your
customized default text.
