The standard way is to get the connection via "DA()".
This call can create the connection when there is currently none.

I had to patch a few places in ZPsycopgDA (the only DA we
have in widespread use) such that they get the connection
via "DA()" rather than use it directly. But, it was at most
two places.

If you access hundreds of different databases, this
can become a problem. But, in this case, you will
have a tough time even with a different architecture
(as file descriptors become the bottleneck).
