Exactly this.
KCL and its IDE has another problem: It has to look better than Lazarus,

Sorry, I don't know them. I just know that KDE runs fine without kde-db
on my system.
I think Michael v.C. is doing the right in implementing database support
on a much lower level; database widgets can be added to LCL or KCL

OK, the IDE won't need it, so this is not our first priority.

that is exactly what I want to do with KCL. The main reason why I
started KCL whas that there isn't any comparable project for FreePascal

IMO it's possible

I think I already know what I want _in the long term_...
