One additional note.
Currently, I use simple hack to pass database name together with
hostname but without using ConnectionString property:

service=fdo_test at localhost;username=mloskot;password=pantera;

This way

a) the FdoRdbmsConnection::Open() doesn't refuse the parameters set as
including invalid property.

b) value of service= parameter is passed to rdbi_connect as DataSource
instead of as ConnectionString, but it doesn't matter, because I still
can decode the value and retrieve all components I need.
