My original plan was to dump and take down our 5.0 slave, make backups, then upgrade to Percona 5.5 and enable innodb_file_per_table. I was thwarted when it became apparent that our Ubuntu 9.04 machines aren't compatible with the Percona 5.5 packages -- too old.
I didn't want to leave the database down long enough to do a full system reinstall, and frankly don't have the time today, so I brought it back up on the old 5.0 and didn't set the options. (I seem to recall something weird with that option in 5.0, or maybe it just doesn't work? I don't know.)
Anyway, hopefully sometime Soon(TM) I can find time to upgrade to 10.04 ... of course, 12.04 is coming out very soon. I don't know that I want to trust the first release on our databases, though. That's probably unwise.
