This is why:
you use QtSQL or figure out the deps on your own.

Okay now that I've stated the obvious, if they are not going to use QtSQL then 
you are dependent on some 3rd party lib that we wont officially support.  We 
already have a taste of this in KDevelop with bdb.  Just because we have 
people depending on wacky libs and different versions of those libs at that, 
doesnt warrant us importing ya package into KDE cvs that we don't maintain.

Honestly people the Trolls offer database abstraction for a reason, and its 
not because they enjoy randomly adding features no-one uses to Qt.  Well they 
may but Id expect that to be a mp3 player or something ;)
