"Alternate" does imply that you're going to alternate between two 
databases periodically, so yes, that's not quite the right word as far 
as usage goes.  "Using", though, is necessary because it tells the

deleting, installing, coding, or eating it.

Hmm, the documentation for submitting issues and feature requests to 
Mosquito is not yet written...
