Firstly I have some general questions. How expensive is it to do a DB
query? Is there a clever way to cache the result of a query? We only need
to refresh it if DB is changed.

Next is libgda going to use the new gnome-keyring feature? It would be
nice and more secure to store the username/password of a DB connection
with that facility rather relying on AbiWord to securely store them.
