This uses a slightly modified version of David Coveney's "search and
replace" script, which I use quite regularly and has never let me down. (
 I also have  used development sites that match the character length
the live site (e.g. "dev.example.com" and "www.example.com") and doing a
straight search and replace.  Although this is not guarantee to not f*** up
serialized data, I have had a lot of success with it as well.

The Ascerta script seems pretty straightforward. (Except it seems to not be
doing much with $SOURCEHOST and $DESTINATIONHOST; you can add the -h option
to the mysql and mysqldump commandd if not using localhost.)
