Certainly not "just minor adjustments", since we need to do dynamic
loading and checking for the functions. That's the big one, which will
certainly increase the required code a lot. The part about letting the
client specify how is probably fairly easy, if we can figure out a good
one. (I personally think we've clearly shown that using the
connectionstring is not a good enough way to do it)
