dbinfo - For LiveJournal installations with many databases, the database connection info, roles, and weightings can be stored in the database instead of the %LJ::DBINFO hash, for easier (web-based) management.
dbweights - The dbinfo table keeps track of which databases exist. This ones keeps track of each database's roles and weights.
dirsearchres2 - Holds the results of a directory search query. userids is either "[searching]" if a query is still running, or a list of userids if it is finished.
domains - Keeps track of user-owned domain names, and which journals they map to when pointed at the LiveJournal installation's IP address.
dudata - Tracks user-based disk usage totals.
duplock - Provides a place to record that an action has been done, so it doesn't get done a second time later by a user accidentally double-clicking a single-click button in their browser. The idea is that the application should grab a write lock for both the table it's inserting into, and the duplock table. Then, check the duplock table for a duplicate. If it's already in there, unlock the tables and remember the dupid to tell the user (app should pretend it was the first time... don't show an error message!), or if it's not in there, put it in the table, and then put the resulting uniqueid from the table handler into the duplock table (as dupid). The duplock table is purged every hour or so of all locks older than an hour.
