Hi Brett,

Believe it or not, but this happened to my too, several times.

IMHO, the proper approach will be have an empty db_url for the modules, 
so that you may get a warning or so when trying to use a module without 
explicitly setting the db_url.....

Default, hidden params may be dangerous here....
