Note that when you look at Zope2's zopeschema.xml's zodb_db config,
there isn't a clue there that the section's name is used for
something, let alone what it's used for.  This lack of discoverability
goes away when using an named key, and that's a better long-term place
to be.

I don't expect that adding an optional named key to <zodb> config will
_stop_ <zodb_db> config from doing whatever it wants to do instead. 
If it does, I agree that would be a problem.
