Why doesn't cpanel store the mysql databases along with the cpanel settings inside the user's home directory ? It would be better in my opinion.

I suppose it would be more correct in theory but I would hate to deal with a manual restore of databases through hundreds of users that way. Sure you can run scripts and place it, etc... But, I prefer zipping up the /var/mysql directory as a whole and dump it on another server for a move or backup. The same holds true for cpanel settings.

I am sure there are many other reasons but that horror just went through my mind when I read your post.
