right. The question is if, as bond/papyrus have tried to do, qof can be
changed to use libgda for the basic data access.

Then, as I said in a previous mail, we can see what things make sense
from it and either put them in libgda/libgnomedb/whatever, or keep them
in its current place.

If all this conversation is about sharing technology, then, we've got:
* libgda -> uniform data access to several data sources
* qof stuff -> built on top of libgda

That's what I'm saying. Is there any chance of this?
