Hi David,

Thank you for the thoughtful response..
I agree that having KInterbasdb would not solve our DA problem, but at
least it would let me use the new Interbase Storage option..

A few people have been successful doing this, (compiling KInterbasdb
with IB6beta) perhaps one of them could write up a HowTO?

Thank you.
