It would be nice to be able to enter non-standard database options during installation. I have seen that PDO and MYSQLI conciders some of the non-standard options like “unix_socket” at the config.ini.php. But the user is not enabled to install with such non-standard database options.

The “host” field is parsed, so there’s some flexilbility already, eg “hostname:port” and “/path/to/socket”.
