Our backups are quick large - over 500 MB. Opening the file and adding
the above line at the top takes a lot of CPU time and memory - and when
I'm restoring, I don't have a lot of time...
Is there an easier way to get it there - can I 'cat' to the beginning of
a file, or should I make my backup scripts cat the output of mysqldump
to the end of a file with 'set foreign_key_check=0;' at the top? Maybe
we could have a switch for mysqldump that does this for us?
