yes, it's started, but does not work yet. In fact, the whole report
client lib is implemented (not tested though), so the only missing part
is the engine.

the only info you can get about the XML queries is on the source code,
well, and some docs, in libgda/lib/gda-common/gda-xml-query.
About the efficiency problems, yes we're aware. But this is not a
problem, since you can always use SQL if that's what you want. XML
queries are optional, and will be used in places where we don't know
anything about the underlying database (DB designer, export/import,
query designer, etc).
But, as I said, you can always use SQL if you want.

BTW, did you get my mail about the GDA::Listener interface? This could be the
solution for the logger you wanted to implement.
