LibAlkimia will be a dependency of KMM.
Alkimia, the storage backend, will not be included in KMM, but there
is going to be the possibility to communicate with it, like AqBanking
or OFX today.
For quotes, we expect it to act as a central storage of shares and
currency quotes, which KMM may or may not use, like Finance::Quote
today, for example.
So, you will still be able to use other means to update your quotes.
