Uhhhh yes, I always forget about Glorp. This is a problem because Glorp
shouldn't be aware of DBXConnectionSettings. Glorp should ONLY see the API
of DatabaseDriver. This is the all idea, that you can easily change the
database driver. If Glorp core uses DBXConnectionSettings, we are dead :(

I will try t think how to solve it too.

Glorp WAS and IS developed in VisualWorks Smalltalk (another Smalltalk
dialect). Someone once port it to Squeak. The last squeak (and thus, Pharo)
version of GLorp is like 2 o 3 years old. If you take the version of today
of VisualWorks you will see mcuh more things and features in Glorp.

We once tried to port it, but it was very complicated and we didn't have too
much time. We concentrated in fixing SqueakDatabaseAcceessor and being able
to use ANY database driver. That's all our refactor and the thing behind the
name GlorpDBX.
