In my little IB_WISQL tool I take full advantage of this nifty feature
except there was one problem, there were no CRLF pairs as each segment was
designed to hold one line of BLR converted text. That didn't look so great
when the streamed representation of the results were stuffed into a memo

As a result of this I modified my engine to recognize the BLR to text
conversion and stuff in the CRLF pairs so that things would look nice and
tidy as they should.

I found that this was the only way I could master BLR was to write a stored
proc and then peek at the BLR it generated... Wish I had a blue book on it!

Most useful (to me).
