That is the intended use for the database parameter block. One
of original goals of the DSRI architecture was to permit two
groups that disliked each other so much that they couldn't be
left together in same room without a former bouncer from the
Buckets Of Blood Bar in Youngstown, Ohio, to co-exist and
interplay nicely. Whether the Firebird/Borland schism has reached
that level, I can't say. You might register your dpm parameter
number with the folks at Borland. I'd start with Charlie, but
they haven't had a titular architect since well into last
