  i just want to make another "test" copy of a mysql database on the
same system, to mess with while leaving the original alone.  the
solution i've seen is to use mysqldump to dump it, then restore it
under another name.  that, of course, works but is there an internal
mysql command that will do that?  i didn't notice one.
