There is a GDA provider for ODBC sources, I think.  But I can't think of any
data sources that GDA supports, and ODBC doesn't.  Except maybe LDAP,  but I
don't think the GDA:LDAP provider works (yet).

Ximian keeps talking about integrating Open Office with GNOME, so ?maybe? that
will include GDA.... Probably dreaming here.

Maybe Mono could be used to build a data conversion application?  It supports
GDA (or so I'm told), does it also support ODBC?
