There is no logical reason to invent QtSQL over again.  KDE 4 will rely on Qt 
4.  Qt 4 has QtSQL in it, with many new powerful features.  Kexi will be 
redundant as a framework, but maybe not as an app.   I am sure you think kexi 
is cool, heck i think most of the things i write are cool too.  But the fact 
remains QtSQL can do it, so why bother adding another layer of complexity.
Reinventing the wheel over and over again is fun, its a neat academic 
exercise, but i think this is getting silly.  There is not rational reason 
SQLite or Kexi deps in KDE libs.  Qt offers the encapsulation we need, and 
Qt4 will even prove more features.
