If we are talking PHP5 then the undocumented bit is all the ibase_ can
be changed to fbird_ , so Johan could use
$userid = fbird_gen_id ('G_USERS');

Would be nice to see the ibase_ fall out of use when using Firebird.
It is just a wrapper round the ibase_* but in the future if any changes
are needed specific to Firebird, then the fbird_ version can be modified.
