I already have some use cases where I have to connect to external databases and display the data in a preside application. Further more I need the data in the admin to display and manage some of the data.
Of course I'd like to use the preside framework with the possibility of CRUD operations.
It would be cool to access the external database with a dsn and an object definition.
I already raised a ticket about customizing the id fieldname. I think this relates to that (see linked issue)
