How to refer to Confluence's own database from SQL add on?

When defining a data-source profile for the just installed "SQL for Confluence" plugin, I'd like a short-cut to be able to refer to the Confluence's own database-connection. Ideally, I'd have shortcuts for each component too. For example, the below construct copies everything from Confluence's own DB-settings overwriting only the username:

dbDriver=@confluenceDbDriver@ | dbUrl=@confluenceDbUrl | dbUser=confluence-ro | ...

Is something like this possible, or should I file a feature request?

No, that is not currently possible, you would need to use the same database setup information as any other database you want to access. Normally, I would set up a application data source for Confluence main access and then use that or duplicate to a different named data source so you could isolate the 2 uses. Feel free to write up an improvement request.
