Well, that's a non-sequitor..  I have no idea what a library name
conflict with a previous release has to do with a stable release of 2.0.
Keeping in mind that there never WAY a libgda 2.0 release, I don't see why
you needed to jump up to 3.0.  *shrugs*  But not my project.

Um, I dont think you understand here.  If there is no libgda then there's
no way to compile even a conditional, because e.g. libgda.h wouldn't
exist to compile against!  It's not a question of what backends GDA supports.
It's whether GnuCash supports GDA at all!

Okay, that makes sense.  Then 3.0 it is.
