"my *database*" corresponds to the current database, which is created with
"create database" in postgresql. It corresponds to the catalog concept in

The schema is below the database. Access to different schemas with one
is mandatory. Access to different catalogs (databases) with one connection
is not mandatory,
but should imho be solved analogous to access to another catalog on a
(SQL99) cluster. This would be a very nifty feature.
