That would imply that:
a) I understand GDA enough to write a patch, or
b) the GDA folks would be responsive enough to get a patched version
   out well in time for releases to pick it up before we release gnucash.
c) GDA would be willing to make the fixes in their 3.x tree and not
   make us wait for the 4.x tree (which apparently removes GdaQuery).

I'm all for improving GDA, but there are limits.  :)
