I have started looking at the type 4 driver over the past week or so, and
yest it is slower that Interclient, but it is about the same speed of an
equivilent Delphi app or IB_SQL 'query'.

This makes me belive that Interclient, being a client/server implementation,
uses its own 'compressed' over the wire protocol which speeds things up
considerably. This means that while the type 4 client speaks 'native'
Firebird, it will never be as fast as IC.

My personal opinion is that the type 4 client developers concentrate on new
features etc., and leave the 'over the wire' speed issues to the Firebird
