[thelist] Single or multiple MySql databases.

I generally keep all of my site's inner workings in one database.

To save conflicts, I use prefixes on the tables, such as wp_ for the 
word press tables, and list_ for the phplist

The advantage to this is that if someday you need to join data, its FAR 
easier to join within the same database for a simple query.

If you don't ever see that happening, you can certainly use a separate DB.
