Well, there's a big difference if we have a negative reply from the  
or no reply at all from the database because it's down. In general,  
I'm wondering
how to catch that state in the Openser config without reading log  
files - maybe
the error_route could catch these so I could send a warning somewhere.
That would be generic enough and handled from the db subsystem.

We already have apps that return various error codes that are  
like the auth functions and the t_relay function.
