No, because if you don't have an explicit receive-symbol, then you can't 
share database connections and logins in the way that you choose, unless 
you force all sql objects to be connected directly to a database 
connection object.

What I'm saying is the other way around. You start with a user-specified 
symbol and you use it to find the database connection object. The query 
object doesn't know the database object until it looks up the symbol. I'm 
really telling you to do it like [tabread]; what you are thinking about 
now, is not like [tabread].
