That's been the common wisdom for a long time.

However, this just popped up on my RSS reader. I haven't even looked at it, let alone
tried it.

I'm interested in what the experts think...

"Getting rid of huge ibdata file, no dump required: You have been told (guilty as
charged), that the only way to get rid of the huge InnoDB tablespace file (commonly named
ibdata1), when moving to innodb_file_per_table, is to do a logical dump of your data,
completely erase everything, then import the dump."
