Request for enhancement: The database access module to store the database password with the database properties and not prompt the user each session. Note this means storage between sessions, OOo already retains the password internally for the session. Re-entering the password is only a small effort but makes using OOo just a bit more awkward than it need be. This should be an optional feature. Access to OOo is controlled by access to the system via the system's passwords and physical security of my front door, for non secret data this is sufficient. I don't want to run a database without a password because the database is available on the network for all users and possibly the outside World should my firewall fail. StarOffice 5.2 has this feature.

I support this request. I am deploying OOo as a DB client, in a context where users should not be asked to remember a database password. Storing passwords in the OOo files allows to handle access privileges at the filesystem level.
