We should be very careful of coding workarounds in gnucash to "fix"
limitations in libgda. Time passes, libgda is fixed, and suddenly our
"fix" becomes our bug.
We should rather sanity check the backend when we start, to make sure
that certain basic sane defaults are supported. For example, we might
(and probably should) require prepared statement support. If prepared
statement support is missing for that backend, that backend should be
greyed out (with some hint to the user as to why).
Then - as soon as libgda releases a backend that fits our requirements,
gnucash suddenly supports that backend.
This is significantly safer in the long term.
