[Bug 676398] Re: Kexi Package Way Too Monolithic

I don't see installing a couple of database access libraries as being a
problem.  libsybdb5, libxbase2.0-0 and libpqxx-3.0 aren't large and
don't require installing the actual database server.

Splitting up kexi would have people install and run kexi then wonder why
it wasn't connecting to their preferred database.  Working out that you
have to install another package isn't a great user experience.
