I have had a similar module for LDAP as a concept for a while now, which 
I plan to build once I have some time.

Have a look at the proxy framework for this - the idea is that you map a 
webserver URL to a backend URL, such as this:

ProxyPass /database sql://machine:9000/database

The proxy framework gives you concepts such as load balancing and 
connection pooling, which could mean less for you to worry about.
