Thanks for your answer.
Using the db_manager tools has an advantage : you can interact with
Spatialie and Oracle too.
I have no time at the moment to have a look at it, but I will write back
here whenever I have some.
We should first make sure which plugin or algorithm uses it, and see if
this can be changed.
