Its in configdir, along with the rest of the dbs. Its not created by
default, since its not required for normal operation.
Actually, its not the most efficient implementation right now, since it
does an open/read/close per login. I need to rework it so that it does
the open at service init time, leaves the db open for reading for the
each process reuse, and closes it at service shutdown time. This will
take a little work, because we plan on using a remote MySQL database at
CMU, so the actual read function will also have to reconnect if necessary.
