That'd be great!

By the way, I want to be clear what I meant: the limit I was talking about
is on the length of a SQL statement, including all literal strings therein.
So regardless if you permit 1MB string literals or whatever, there is
currently a hard limit on the total length of the "INSERT" statement in
DSQL, so you wouldn't be able to specify literal strings for multiple fields

It'd be great to remove this SQL statement length limitation. It has bitten
InterBase occasionally.
