You can connect to any database in order to list the databases.
Obviously you do NOT want to import your LSMB dataset into template1
as that would cause amusing issues when you create new databases.
Connecting to it in the first step is safe, but if you are
uncomfortable, you can create a safe db to connect to instead.
