I think he means the 'blog_url' and 'blog_home' entries in the wp_options

@Andrew, I think there is a role for some kind of "back-up / migrate site"
functionality that only requires going through the WP interface, which could
be partially what Meher is going for. The current export contains an XML of
entries and comments -- what if you could additionally include options,
assets, and media in the same export? Then pop that back into another blog,
click the 'import' button, and you're done. No mucking about in FTP/MySQL.
Incidentally, this is exactly what backup/restore is supposed to do in
Movable Type, but it's horribly buggy and mostly useless.
