Add an option to limit the number of connections to a database

Description (last modified by )
With the introduction of threads in Django 3.0, somehow only changing from Django 2.2.x to Django 3.0 causes the number of connections to build up, with each request a new connection being added.
Probably this pile-up is because of some bug in one of the Django-related packages. However, it would be nice to have a safety feature in Django not to exceed a limit of database connections. It would make the whole system a lot more robust.
(At the moment it is not even worth to switch for some long term users who use a long list of packages along with Django because the db connection buildup has no straightforward solution, yet.)
