Replacing file-system by database in KStars

Hi guys,

Currently when KStars is launched, it reads data corresponding to different
Skyobject from respective file in loaddata() methods. And I have tracked
out all the classes where we are loading data by reading file.

I researched bit on the topic and I found that loading data from database
is always much better option then doing same from file.

If we replace file system with QSql following are the Pros:

1) We will not have to ship so many files with Kstars
2) Loading from database is quicker than doing same from file
3) Code for load methods will be reduced in size

1) I will have to move all data from files into database by temporary

So I am planning to start coding to replace file system by database on my
local branch.

Can you please give your views and suggestion regarding the same ? I am
sure that It will be very helpful to me. :)
