We already have a ResultSet interface in use inside the engine. We
don't need another one. I want everything inside the engine that deals
logically with result sets to be able to the use same API. We will
shortly have an RsbResultSet class in the RecordSource type hierarchy to
pump records out of an instance of ResultSet. I want to be able to use
the same code for InternetResultSet, results returned by external
procedures, and maybe UDFs some day. If everyone want to invent their
very own interface, this can never happen.

So, if you want to play in the engine, you have to accept engine
conventions. One of those conventions is the ResultSet abstract
interface class. Use it.
