No, image formats have standardized binary representations so they are
portable.  The problem is with applications that write their own
binary values and data structures to disk without conversion.   I
don't know much about msyql internals, but I wouldn't expect it to go
to the trouble of normalizing things like index files just in case you
wanted to move those disks to a sparc instead of doing a dump/load.
