If so, could this person also provide ODBC or PostgreSQL drivers for Qt as
well?  It would be *really* helpful to be able to integrate to a free database
(as in free speech and in free beer) and ODBC would allow integrating with
several other databases. 

One of the strongest points of Qt over other toolkits, besides its cleaness is
the easiness to integrate it with database servers.

This could be a vast field for GPL application replacing what is normally done
with Microsoft Access.
