       $(sysconfdir)/libgda/config   -   libgda   global  configuration  file.
       $(HOME)/.libgda/config - libgda user configuration file.


       The config file of libgda is an XML  file.  The  document  starts  with
       <libgda-config>  tag,  which contains sections that hold the configured
       database providers for libgda.

       The values in the global configuration file are overriden by  the  ones
       in the user configuration file.

       Each  <section>  has  a  ’path’ attribute whose value must be something
       like "/apps/libgda/Datasources/XXXXXXXX", where XXXXXXXX is the name of
       the database backend (i.e., postgres, mysql,...)

       Inside each <section> you can have for <entry> tags with ’name’, ’type’
       and  ’value’  attributes.  Valid  values  for  ’name’  are:   Provider,
       Username,  DSN  and  Description.  ’type’  value is always "string" and
       ’value’ contains the value for the given ’name’.


       This  is  a  sample  file.  You  may  modify  it  manually,  add/remove

              <?xml version="1.0"?>
                <section path="/apps/libgda/Datasources/postgres">
                  <entry name="Provider" type="string" value="PostgreSQL"/>
                  <entry name="Username" type="string" value="gonzalo"/>
                  <entry name="DSN" type="string"
                  <entry name="Description" type="string"
                         value="Mi favourite provider"/>
