Ouch, I should have though of that :) I see in rcorder.c that it's valid
and supported to have one script with "PROVIDE: database mysql" and
another with "PROVIDE: database postgresql". Also from looking at the
code, it seems that probably there's no need for a dummy "database" script.

It's still not clear to me if one could put "database_load=YES" in
rc.conf and load them all at once?

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nath Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't
you understand?
