Since the idea is that glueing makes a bunch of separate databases act 
as a single database, I think it is actually Least Astonishing that all 
of the glued databases are opened when you specify the main database. 
Currently there is no way to open only the top level database (unless 
you disable the glue) but you can of course specify individual 
subdatabases and work on them separately. Feel free to add notes to this 
effect to slapo-glue(5).
