Yup, that's exactly what they do.  We put the full LERG in there which is
about 350,000 routes and it doesn't even bother it thanks to MySQL's ability
to search records lightning fast.  

We also use it to provision our customers and their routing live via some
PHP scripts which simply write to the MySQL tables appropriately.  No more
restarting or reloading Asterisk :)
