No, _please_, no... not the registry...

As a first step (along what will undoubtedly be a loonng road) can I
suggest the use of a simple text file (named IBAlias, much like
IBConfig) with the following simple layout/structure.


The sysadmin would use their favorite text editor to create/maintain the
file. Also, like IBConfig would not be exposed to remote clients and
therefore provide a good deal of security (not necessarily perfect).

There was a long discussion of the subject on IBArchitect; I don't
remember that it came to a clear decision. My inclination is to use
the registry on Windows systems since other environments can (and do)
use symbolic links and logical names.
