Totally makes sense. I actually am working on a project where several different sites utilize the exact same platform I created except for the database. This will be huge plus in only maintaining one set of files locally and then being able to push the code to all the respective different sites and allow them to acquire the connection information dynamically.
I just saw it at 3 AM this morning for the first time and hadn't had a chance to download and begin testing until now. I will report back anything I find.
