AFAICT Jim wrote the original Interbase code (please correct me if I am wrong), so
maybe someone could explain to those of us who are less into the Interbase history,
how we ended up with two variations of the same theme. Namely Classic and
Super Servers.

Perhaps if there were an explaination behind the reasoning, it would be easier to
understand for everyone involved, and perhaps someone can come up with some
ideas to replace both with a new integrated server.
