No, because this connection string has nothing to do with 'normal'
Firebird connection strings. SQL Alchemy parses this string to username,
password, host, port and path and passes those as separate properties.
For this it depends on its own specific URL format. As I replied back in
May it has likely to do with having 3 / after the port instead of one.
