Summary0006720: nexus and sandbox should support getting the DB connection string from an environment variable
DescriptionOtherwise, the DB credentials might be leaked to other users.

We could also use a configuration file, but it is probably overkill for just one setting.
TagsNo tags attached.

DB connection string can be read from LIBEUFIN_{SANDBOX,NEXUS}_DB_CONNECTION. Note that the command line way is still an option.

This change: 90d2a60..c8d3cde, removes the command line parameter to set the connection string.
It got too unnecessarily complicated to check that at least _one_ method defined the connection string.
And after all, it prevents programmatically the leakage of the DB's credentials.
