Thanks, it's working now.  I've been using the name of the data source 
rather than the name of the section.  It doesn't make any sense to call 
it data source name (dsn) at places where the name of a section is expected.

It also doesn't make sense that the section name in res_odbc.conf should 
be relevant here.  Resources (res) would be configuration information 
--- the tables for this are created with alembic --- while logging 
information is something else --- and the tables for it are not created 
with alembic.

This could use a lot of cleanup and (or at least) much better documentation.
