Author Leyne, Sean

On the subject of the next ODS change, what would it take to increase
the namespace size of the DB object from 31 to, say, 63 characters?

I am considering making a short term change to the way
the sub_type field is used on numeric datatypes. The
change would define a sub_type of 0 or NULL as the native
type (short, int, int64, float, double). Sub_type 1
indicates that the column was defined as decimal. Sub_type
2 indicates that the column was defined as numeric.

When we make an ODS change, I'd like to add a column to
rdb$fields called rdb$precision, to hold, (surprise) the
defined precision. That will involve extending dyn and
a few other things.
