multiple database connections cursors

I use connection.cursor for making raw sql queries and needed to access one of the alternate databases in my settings.DATABASES
I had a look through the code and realised that I could just do this

from django.db import connections
cursor = connections['logs'].cursor()

instead of what I had been doing earlier (when everything was in the same database)

from django.db import connection
cursor = connection.cursor()

Multiple database support is really well implemented, I think you should mention the above in your docs somewhere to complete the perfect picture.
