Hi all,

I just wanted to keep this discussion going=... the provider here:

could certainly be integrated into QGIS. A SpatialLight provider would 
be a fantastic addition to the QGIS repertoire. It has been suggested 
elsewhere that if QGIS worked with SpatialLight as easily as ESRI works 
with Geodatabases, then SpatialLight might be able to grow into an 
opensource Geodatabase alternative, which would be great for 
data-sharing and portability...
