Oh man, thats right.  I totally forgot about the good works of the gnome-db
people. This will allow us to not worry about what database we use.
gnome-db actually works on a flat file if I recall if you aren't using
a database.  So that makes things a lot easier as Bastien stated as it
doesn't require that we set up a database infrastructure on our own.

We don't need to use mergeant.  Mergeant is kind of pgaccess, it's just
an application that uses gnome-db framework.  If we use gnome-db it will
probably require:


I think there's one more library but I'm not certain.  There are 
some ui objects that you need in order to pull up some of the db 
provider dialogs.  Hopefully this doesn't sound too complex. ;)
