Yesterday I was thinking (yes, sometimes I do), and I decided to add a
new object(s) to the gda-common library to manage a generic XML file, as
we need to do so for several files: Gda_Report and Gda_XmlDatabase (to
export/import data). So, if you agree with me on this, I'll do the

struct Gda_XmlFile -> contains all code to hide the XML file access
struct Gda_XmlReport -> a subclass of Gda_XmlFile with all specific code
for the report file
struct Gda_XmlDatabase -> a subclass of Gda_XmlFile with all specific
code for the database file

then, I'll add a Gda_XmlObject which wraps all access to the specific
items on each XML file format. For example, Gda_XmlQuery would be a
subclass of this Gda_XmlObject.

So, what do you think?
