If your application requires "tens of thousands of databases" 
it seems to imply poor design. Do you mean databases or tables?

Perhaps if you could give some more information on *what* you 
actually want to achieve [rather than *how* you were thinking 
of doing it] we might be able to offer some more assistance...
