I just learned something, thanks. Maybe the doc should be state explicitely
that this can be run on the new node (I may have missed it though).
I thought that it could only be done on a node with the "real" mnesia
started already, and I was using:

  rpc:call (, mnesia, change_config, [extra_db_nodes, [node()]])
