Hu. This is hot stuff.

I'm not sure if it would work like so:
UNION=('/path/to/server1/db1.table1', db2.table2)

But you can edit the .MRG file by hand. Just ensure that the server doesn't use the table while editing. And keep the line ending as it is (NL vs. CR/NL if you work on Windows).

WARNING: If it is possible that two or more servers can access the same table(s), you _must_ run all servers with the --external-locking option enabled. Otherwise the table(s) will corrupt very soon.
