    hmm, we've got, in libgda, a XML format to create .connection files
    which contain all necessary information to connect to the database. We
    can easily add there info for commands to be run.

    We've got also the XML query format, which although not use too
    extensively, it works pretty well. So, we can make a GUI to design the
    query, save that query to a file and run it over from the command line.
    It shouldn't be hard at all.

    What would be needed in the abiword part to do this?
