Comment (by filosofo):

 Thanks masquerade, I was just missing the obvious: instantiating the child
 class as $wpdb.  Duh.

 Sorry, I haven't had much sleep recently. :-)

 So please bear with me if I'm still not thinking clearly, but wouldn't the
 re-defined $wpdb apply only to those db requests that occur ''after''
 plugins are loaded?  In other words, isn't the set of db requests that you
 could affect via a child class (defined in a plugin) no greater than the
 set of db requests that you could affect via my proposed filter?

 Except it seems the child class technique has the disadvantage of making
 you redefine the table variables and the entire query method, when you
 might want just to make a simple string replacement.
