If you know what all of the possible "organizations" are, then write a model 
that instantiates all the DB connections (schemas, whatever) at 'new' time, 
then returns the appropriate one at ACCEPT_CONTEXT time. It's the "here's one 
we prepared earlier" approach. If that's not feasible, it should be obvious 
how to change it to doing nothing at startup, creating connections on demand, 
and "caching" them for the life of the process.
