Since 2003, KexiDB is a candidate for being exactly such a solution for 
kdelibs. KexiDB module uses SQLite almost from the begging and provides 
library and set of widgets (table grid, and recently - forms). Database 
drivers are provided as plugins (MySQL, PostgreSQL drivers also available).

Please notice that KexiDB is also (except in Kexi) used by ShowImg (digiKam 
competitor) for image catalogs, thus it's so far, application which is doing 
things properly without rewriting KexiDB functionality.
Btw, it's also planned to develop optional Qt-only KexiDB version.
