Yeah, I can't see so many [dbmodules]/KDB plugins entries that providing
the absolute path to the dbname parameter is burdensome.  This seems
straightforward and less likely to configured improperly as compared to
having two parameters to deal with.

As an aside, I'm thinking that the dbname parameter could use a better
name.  Perhaps it should be db_plugin or something like that.  Note, I
was going to suggest db_module but there already is a database_module
parameter used in the [realms] section and I could see some confusion
resulting from supporting both parameters.
