Although, when you think about it, it kinda defeats the purposes of 
firewalls. Not that I'm criticising you personally, you understand.

Ah yes, but is there really? For example, I did a search of the TOC of 
GTK+ Reference Manual:
http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/2.0/gtk/index.html
for the word "data", and there's apparently no widget which is 
explicitly tied to databases. So in GTKs case, for instance, it looks 
like one has to roll one's own solution, rather than just using one out 
of the box.
