Posting these proof-of-concept patches because I want to go back and
look carefully at some of the API subtleties that arise, mainly the
question of what happens if the user passes a database_path, and the
library finds a config file which conflicts with that path. Currently
the config file wins, which doesn't seem quite right, but might or
might not be easy to fix.

Also I note that fixing the bug with split configurations for _one_ of
the python frameworks isn't handled really well by the tests in a loop
of id:20211026021131.3162922-1-david@tethera.net

I guess a final question is if we should even bother fixing split
configs for the old python bindings? It is a new feature, so in a
sense it's reasonable not provide it in the deprecated bindings.
