It's not, IMHO. You don't even know if the local database is where the
user is intending to connect to. Moreover this presupposes some rather
obsolete ideas about what connection parameters might need to be given
on the command line.
Something that might be more useful is to see if there's a connection
and offer the names of service entries in it.
