Sounds nice.  As an option, anyway.

Sounds even less intuitive than the old "first database" hack to me,
since the access one wants to back-config and to the root DSE etc is
very different.  With "first database" one can at least select which
database to put first.  Besides, we might someday want to implement ACL
support in back-config.

Don't anthropomorphize computers. They hate that.
