the individual DB has strong and weak points. the user that use it will
have to select a apposite DB. if we are possible, I think which DB does
it is better the thing of the user is less concerned with use.
For example, the user installs the providers of DB which is available
and GNOME-DB choose a thing in the purpose from those providers
automatically. (need the transaction, speed, search, distributed
management, etc.)
I think all right because GNOME-DB can be manage it even if GNOME-DB
choose multiple DB.
So that I don't think I want to decide the default provider.

any idea?
