Nothing against IBO, as I have never used it, but The IBX component source code is freely available from so
support for FireBird could be added easily.
Obviously the only major problem is that someone will need to maintain it.

But apart from that, IBX ( or FBX if a FireBird specific version is
maintained ) is a viable alternative to IBO.

I hope this helps and motivates someone to take the lead in such a project.
