Yes. One needs to allow mappings between C objects and tables to 
not be 1-1 (one C object might map to bits of various tables).
And there needs to be non-trivial querying on the client side. 

These are the reasons why I said 'libgda is not enough', and these
are the reasons why I've worked on things like dwi and qof, and why
I want to continue working on them.
