Totally agree with this, this makes local development of a site quite
trivial. Just edit your hosts file (or run a local DNS or whatever you
prefer to do) and point the domain name to your localhost, then set up
the site. Bingo, a straight SQL dump will move over just fine. No
tricky business with search and replace or anything else.

The only real issue in moving SQL dumps around is the domain name
changes. So remove that from the equation.
