The Rekall database engine is abstracted, and older/more mature/more 
powerful than either what is in Qt or Kexi.  The principal of Qt/SQL was 
derived from what we did with Rekall, we tried to move the Rekall engine to 
it, but at the time (and this might still be the case) it couldn't handle 
what we wanted to do.
