I can't beleive you just said that. Let the flame wars resume.
What DWI/QOF/gnucash currently does, and what gnomedb DOES NOT DO

-- an object query system. libgda does not.
-- a uuid system. libgda does not.
-- an object persistance infrastructure. libgda does not.
-- a multi-user object caching and cache-coherence system. libgda does not.
-- a data-set partitioning system. libgda does not.

This is maybe the fourth or fifth time you've said that "gnomedb
does this" and maybe the fourth or fifth time I've said that 
"gnome db has the wrong abstractions in place to correctly 
support these necessary features!"
