My point was that they should not *need* to know. Too much information
can be detrimental.

Well their main page does not say anything about database based

but then a Pylons wiki says it does, but I could not find any
information on out how to set up beaker with a database ... truth to
be told I was just curious of how they would go about integrating a
database and still keep it "pluggable".

Because it would either need to know about the way the server handles
the database connections (which makes it application specific) or it
has to create new database connections in which case it would be
duplicating the functionality leading to all kinds of headaches.

So there, even a simple requirement exposes the fallacy of building
anything complex out of "pluggable" components.
