Yep. That someone with a urgent need put down a draft list of
requirements. Here are mine:

- should work at least on Windows. A plus would be to have it work on
Linux as well. Having it working on more platforms would be a welcome

- small footprint: it should be included in the Firebird Setup or in a
"Plus" pack easily available.

- Features: database explorer, SQL editor and capable to run scripts
(but it could just call ISQL for that). Database create/drop is a
must. Backup/restore a plus.
