[erlang-questions] Mnesia Backup/Fallback Problems With Schema

The circle completes...

I tried this first and hit the problem mentioned in the documentation:

   `If the database is huge, it may not be possible to restore it
online. In such cases, the
   old database must be restored by installing a fallback and then restart.`

Basically the system runs out of memory on restore even when the
tables are all swapped to be on disk only...

So then I tried to get install_fallback working :(

So essentially there is no way to selectively restore large tables?
