The only other users i know of are glom and libgdamm, but both use the 
previous 1.2 stable release that is packaged seperately 
(compat-libgda-1.2.4). Glom has an unstable branch that works with 
libgda 3.0, so i think both glom and libgdamm are likely to move to 
libgda 3 before we hit F-8. I'll EOL compat-libgda-1.2.4 when that happens.
