saving databases in user directories; is there a better way?

I would like store user databases in their user directory (/home/username/Databases/dbname/)
and I know I can use symlinks, but I find that very cludgy. Is there something in mysql that
is similar to apache's setup where I can specify a home path to the public_html location or
in this example, a database location?

I am using version 4.0.13 on Red Hat Linux 9

Thanks,
Matt
