Zope DA's do not support this.

If your database allows to switch users in an existing connection
(few do), then it is quite a simple modification in the DA.

If not, a new connection must be opened when the user changes.
If opening a connection is expensive (this is often the case),
you may need to pay a price for your special wish.
