It is a nuisance that you need different wallets to handle different
logins on the same database.  It would have been more useful if the
login  could have been <username>/@<servicename> instead of
/@<servicename>.  One could argue the first provides more security as
neither the password nor the account is revealed, but I don't think that
is worth the pain.
