There's nothing to stop you from making a connection
at the time you do your pass-through query, in the
same code. But you would need to hard-code your
connection parameters, or prompt the user for them;
either approach has its drawbacks. Or you could read
the parameters from another location, but that brings
you right back to your DSN idea...
But I agree with you in general, I like the
simplification that DSNs allow. Although I am not
supporting any large number of client installations.
