Since I haven't looked at code for either IB or FB, maybe I'm off-base here,
but, could you give a simple explanation as to why it would effect so much
Ann? It would be my contention that it should only really effect the SQL
parser code since it would be there that table and field names would be
tested for validity, no? Or would the concern be more for the actual field
name issues involved using special characters and not necessarily for the
delimiting of those names in an SQL statement?
