[wp-hackers] Cloning content from Master site into new sites on a WP Network

After all that from yesterday I simply wrote this today:

$new_mysql_query = 'REPLACE INTO ntw_'.$newsiteid.'_posts SELECT * FROM
ntw_posts WHERE post_type="custom post type";';
$result = mysql_query($new_mysql_query);

It works perfectly and is very fast.  Is this general bad practice and if
it is could you explain why?
