Fixing dataset configuration

Chris, Chris, all:
The way it is now: sets of database configuration parameters are stored
with each *user*. This means that in order to add a new user, you have to
know the database name, port, password and other connection information or
the user add just fails. And the "dataset" name is pretty much useless
since a dataset is not reusable between users, and a user cannot access
more than one dataset/database.
The way it should be: datasets should be a seperate configuration screen,
and a separate table, in the admin interface. The admin should just
choose a dataset, or *multiple* datasets, for a new/modified user, and all
connection information should inherit from the dataset.
Of course, maybe this should be part of proper role/group management in the
future, but it's a step forwards even if we just fix datasets.
... when you get around to it. Thanks.
