LO Base: What does "register the database in LibreOffice" mean?

Asked by tdn on 2011-06-13

Binary package hint: libreoffice

When creating a new database connection in Base, the user is given the question of having the wizard "register the database in LibreOffice". Despite having worked with databases for more than 10 years, upon seing this question, I had absolutely no idea what it meant. This ought to be explained better.
