OK, thanks.  Most other databases I've used would get a bit confused if 
you started fiddling with the contents of their data file directories 
while they were running, it might be worth noting in the docs that this 
is OK for Derby.

Yes, it probably is relevant.  I assume that if you start the master 
database with startMaster=true it locks the database until the client is 
running, or do you have to manually make sure no clients connect until 
after the slave is up and running?
