This would be the best solution. 

Changing step by step. Let us first try to get Firebird better working than
HSQLDB for a normal user. Do not deprecate HSQLDB before. Test the migration.
Migration has to save all: Tables, relations and views. Could be views will be
saved as queries, if code is to complicated. After this is working we should
set HSQLDB as deprecated.

I have seen the long time for getting Firebird to work in Base - experimental
since LO 4.2! We will need also time for a well working Firebird as non
experimental database.
