Hi Godofredo,

Ah, right. I forgot to add them...

I also missed to re-enable the pgquerybuilder. SPIT isn't working too
and I disabled the pggeoprocessing plugin (that's probably going to be
replaced with Horst's python plugin at some point anyway).

Don't get me wrong, I just added the patch to get feedback and as basis
for discussion.  I didn't want to apply it to trunk as it is.  To say
the least, it needs more testing. But my current working copy actually
compiles so that I can supply you with an updated patch, if you like.

After giving it some more thought, I also posted my ideas to the
qgis-developer list.  Did you see that?

If we want to go down that road, there's work to be done on all vector
data providers - so that's probably not a good idea to do that directly
in trunk.

We could "reverse" the patch and apply it to the ogr-plugin-branch and
work there or start a brand new one as that branch won't just touch OGR,
but that would effectivly mean to kill the ogr-plugin-branch...

I'm not sure how to proceed. I'd prefer the latter.
