Ok, so the first step is to create a C++ library which uses the gda-client lib.
Then, we'll do the same for the UI library, coding a GNOME (GTK-- based?)
wrapper, and, if the KDE people are interested, have also a KDE-only widget lib
which will use the libgda-client++ lib.

For me, that's perfect so feel free to start on it as soon as you want. And, in
fact, this was another of the things in the TODO list. I'll have a look at the
SWIG utility I talked about for adding also other languages.

I'll be adding the autoconf/automake needed stuff for this library in the next
