Subject Re: Nulls in CHECK Constraints
Author paulruizendaal
I have had a look at the (FB15) code. Changing this behaviour to
standard compliance is a three-line fix in dsql/gen.cpp I would
assume the same holds for FB2 and Vulcan.

Now we have to think about our installed base and how me might
migrate CHECK behaviour without leaving our beloved users up the
proverbial creek without tools.
