Sure! GDA was considered as primary SQL adapter for Valum.

Really great idea. I came from Ruby on Rails world and some ORM is
really must have for Valum. I know it will be hard implement every
feature that implemented in dynamic languages as Python and Ruby...
But anyway something less raw than connection needed here.

Ony my small opinion, but GNUCash is awesome :) I use it and it has a
lot of wisdom and knows about almost every edge case. Also it has very
good documentation and manuals about personal finance management.

Unfortanutley they do not use libgda but libgdi.
