I don't think this is important enough to be fixed in z stream.
Barak\Arthur, can I close on WONTFIX?

Also in otopi rewrite this will longer be a issue, so will close on 3.4 as well.

It's a simple fix, I think we should do it in z stream.

Also, if passwords do not match, it fails with "global name 'dbhost' is not defined". Also not severe, but ugly.

23187 is for dwh, I didn't the change is ready... It will just be similar to that one.
