Perhaps a db user created on install with a random passwd (chmod 0600),
saved under /etc which only has permission to drop the database. Like
mysql uses to restart the database. of course, this is just moving the
problem to a different file, but if the server is local, anyone with
root access can just delete the database by hand anyhow.
