IMO the best would be to have 3 core modules: libgda, libgnomedb and
egnima, and a 4th one (gnome-db) to be a virtual module which basically
grabs the 3 previous ones.=20

As of now, the integration is (from the source files' point of view)
quite finished since we now have a lib/ directory in gnome-db (The doc
is completely out of date though).

This is also the idea I have.

I agree that we need a kind of features and TODO lists at least for
Egnima. I can propose something if you want.
