    Yeah that would totally work. This is such a subtle point, but I guess I'd argue that
it's clearer with the long constants name. If the `documentation` method was `docUrl` or something
to clearly indicate that we're returning a documentation *URL*, I'd be more in favour of returning
the `all_dbs` string, because you could infer what it was just from looking at the code. However,
you still wouldn't know where to find the URL. At least with the long constant it's immediately
clear where the info's stored.
    But I'm okay with your suggestion. So it would return the uppercase constant name?
