well, I'm not sure. pgsql is very popular too eg...

a www-ressource that holds all our local/distant dbms ressouce, and web 
servers is better.

then, an app knows which dbms it can use, which server it can runs 
under, ... and can ask www-erssource for already configured ressource 
that match, and let the admin choose the one he wants through the list.

we can with that allow use of multiple ressource (not for dbms obviously, 
but for http servers eg).

the dialog should provide a 'add new ressource' and 'leave unconfigured' 
as well.

In fact, we are talking about a wwwconfig-common replacement
