An Inerbase database file isn't a well defined format in the
sense that it's a moving target. Also, from an architecture
point of view, nothing but the engine and possibly a low level
maintenance utility should ever be aware of the format. Developers
are, of course, exempted.

Is there a definitive specification of a Delphi Form File? A fixed
specification is a necessary prerequisive to a subtype number.
