This change is not binary compatible indeed, but the method was 
protected, just introduced in configuration 1.4, and unlikely to be used 
by anyone (getDatasource().getConnection() is preferable to get a 
connection). I wish I could have seen this before the release, I'd like 
to keep the API as clean as possible and prevent unnecessary classes and 
methods in the javadocs, otherwise it's confusing for the users.

I'm still catching up on the unread mails of the dev list, someone 
complained about the lack of documentation for DatabaseConfiguration so 
I wrote the javadoc. An entry in the userguide would be nice too.
