Initial blog entry: 
Microsoft Access has powerful VBA forms allowing many tasks to be performed. Kexi forms are limited to data-bindings and macro execution. To have something as powerful as VBA it is preferential to not re-invent the wheel. QtQuick provides a extensible set of basic components, and a pwoerful scripting language that can be extended with application specific functionality.
- Qt Quick-based forms do not replace QWidget-based forms but complement them.
- They are not interchangeable and probably cannot be combined (except one can be opened using "open" action).
- Menu system/navigation
- Data Entry
- Data based application development using kexi locked-down mode
- We should build some kexi specific components to simplify building forms
- We should provide bindings to control the Kexi instance (already mostly covered)
- We could provide some file io functionality
