allow nodata option in mysql helper to reference a file path
Our backups are getting overwhelmed by Drupal session tables and other database tables that are huge and don't need to be included.
We are working on a way to automatically generate a list of database tables that should be excluded - being able to write this info to a separate file rather than re-parse the mysql helper file would be great.
Perhaps the value of nodata could be checked (-f) to see if it's a file and if so, the contents would be parsed and if not it would be considered a series of database tables?
Or - a new variable - nodatafile ?
