Now I have to, of course. But only because you married server and
database connections into one connection string.

As far as I can read sources, standard database attach procedure is
two-phased. First, client connects to server (op_connect) and then
attach to database (op_attach).
Everything we need to implement 'capabilities+attach' is fish out
server attachment from the dark pool. If we do so,
'capabilities+attach' will be much cheaper than
