What do you mean with 'test SQL scripts'? You can execute scripts using
the 'SQL file' or 'SQL scrapbook' functionality. This also allows you to
save those 'scrapbooks' in your project. It also has as query builder
(which unfortunately does not work entirely OK for Firebird due to the
simulated schemas)

Could you describe what (fundamental) functionality you are missing in DTP?
