Patch to mclient, stethoscope, tomograph to allow database to be specified in dotmonetdb file

The attached patch adds support for specifying the database name in .monetdb with the syntax:

database=mydbname

This is convenient in situations where a user typically connects to the same database all the time.

I list the OS as FreeBSD/amd64 above, but I've used this change for the past few releases under Linux i386, FreeBSD i386 and amd64, and NetBSD amd64.

I haven't tried the patch yet, but it looks pretty good. There is, however, one thing missing.

Can you also fix the manual page. At least mclient.1 needs to be patched, possibly more.

Patch to mclient.1

Additional patch which updates mclient.1. This just adds database to the list of parameters read from DOTMONETDB. I put it after language because that's where it appears in the parameter list.

I've added another patch which adds database to the list of parameters in mclient.1. I looked for other files which reference DOTMONETDB (searching for .monetdb turns up too man hits due to www.monetdb.org occurring in most files), and turned up MTest.py and process.py, but that appears to be using the file rather than testing the interface.
