Hey rodrigo. long time no see. I'm still subscribed to gnome-db. I just
dont say anything anymore. I'm just another one of those faceless
I'm not part of gnue much anymore.  Broke away and did my own thing
as everyone took an age to do anything, all talk no coding.

Be a pain for someone to go though each db and find out how to get the
and add the support.  But I can tell you what information i use from
SQL. The
other thing is i've started to use comments a wee bit in database for
special rules for fields.  Can I query libgda still just like I would
for libpq?
