THAT should be part of the project setup for ADOdb, changing it will
cause other projects problems.

We have standardised on UPPER rather than lower. LOWER is not available
as standard in Firebird 1.5. ADOdb is told to return 'lower' format
names if you need to!

These are changes that are project dependent. We do not use the raw
ADOdb with bitweaver having a modified version that ties in with the
standards that bitweaver uses. Since there is not a 'standard' to work
to, every project is different :(

The other comment I would make is that PHP4 is *NOT* the version of PHP
to be using with Firebird as it's driver does not have many of the
extras that make Firebird work best. bitweaver/ADOdb will not actually
run with the PHP4 php_interbase, only the current PHP5 version.
