I've pointed them that different applications will not know other database
names and so can't connect to them and fill with garbage objects.
Also I don't think that limiting disk space for FreeBSD is not a problem.

So, there was a misunderstanding of "Interbase providing" model, I think.

of course. But, generally a question about limiting user rights to create
databases and connect to them was correct.
