Bugzilla bug 562848 (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=562848) and its
duplicate 562841 (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=562841) request
that 1) the file load/save dialog be merged with the "database connection"
dialog and 2) some method be provided to save as a new XML file (currently,
"save as" will save as sqlite and not provide a way to specify XML).
Possible solution: provide a dialog similar in appearance to the preferences
dialog. on the left side is a list with entries "sqlite", "xml", "mysql" and
"postgresql". If sqlite or "xml" is selected, the left side is a standard Gtk
open or save widget. If "mysql" or "postgresql" is selected, the left side is
the "database connection" dialog which allows the user to enter
Thoughts? I'll probably implement this and add to the menus (while keeping
the current load/save as) so people can use and provide feedback.
