Are you writing about the "ib_udf" library? When I asked for it several
months ago, Brett Bandy (now gone) answered that it wasn't released. I would
like to read Chris Jewell's opinions.

Is there a reason more headaches should be introduced? <g> Now, seriously
speaking: you know very well that UDFs currently lack context: they don't
know anything about character sets, for example. This is a huge
disadvantage. Remember that several people use IB on other charsets than
plain ASCII.
