I don't disagree. Extra checks are always good. In fact, you might 
even use PEAR/HTTP_REQUEST to verify the site_url works (somehow, an 
html file that return a known string without database access or even 
opening lib-common, perhaps). But sometimes there is pain, and since 
all the data in the config tables is serialized, it isn't that easy 
to fix. Some kind of "reinstall without installing" rescue action is 
probably needed.
