Instead of "Using" we could use a form of "Implement". i.e. "Alternative
Database Implementation".

"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 
reader what's going to happen to the alternative database, as opposed to 
deleting, installing, coding, or eating it.

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