Subject Re: Question about limits in fb 2.5 or 3.0

Thanks for the history lesson. So it's not as much a technical problem
(i.e. change types, check for sizeof() etc.) as it is a maintenance
problem of keeping yet another ods version? Because AFAIK, ods is
already different between major fb versions, so why not switch to
32/64bit and break all compat. for fb 3.0? Backwards compat. is good
but you gotta draw a line somewhere, otherwise you'll endup feeding
the preprocessor more than the compiler :) Also, just increasing page
size does not scale (I want at strings of at least a few megs) and
defeats the page cache (not that it's very useful itself these days).
