Yes.  You could also just check in a generated database into CVS and  
use that with some of the same benefit but FWIW, I find the biggest  
value in being able to review this kind of setup code is that it  
serves as a kind of documentation as to *how* an iinitial database  
got created.  Also, setup code is often complex and subtle because  
it's "where the rubber meets the road" in a production  
configuration.  Being able to replicate it on demand with subtle  
changes (like port numbers and filenames) is valuable when you want  
to roll out a system into production.
