Subject Re: [Firebird-Architect] RFC: Proposal for the implementation
Author Dmitry Yemanov

First, I propose to rename the suggested RDB$RELATION_TYPE column to
RDB$STORAGE_TYPE with possible values of 'PERMANENT', 'GLOBAL TEMPORARY' and
'LOCAL TEMPORARY'. Perhaps, external tables could use the value 'EXTERNAL'.
Another option is to name it 'RDB$SCOPE' and leave external tables in piece.

Secondy, could we estimate whether it's the only required ODS change or some
lower level stuff (like another page number space) may cause to other ODS
changes? Can we have a brainstorming on the storage/visibilty issue? So far
I see noone replied to my last message regarding this stuff. If we could
reach some agreement at this point, then I'd like to reserve the necessary
changes in ODS 11, to avoid yet another major ODS change in
