Description

Now that we have icons to load PostGIS, Spatialite, MSSQL, and even SQL Anywhere layers, it would be nice if we could consolidate them into a Database dropdown list. Something like this was done for the Select feature tools. Currently the Add PostGIS and Spatialite layer icons look so much alike that I sometimes select the wrong icon. A database dropdown list similar to the how the Select dropdown works will clean up the gui, and cut down on confusion.
