Subject RE: [ib-support] Idea for a new field type for FB 2,0 or IB 7?
Author Leyne, Sean
I would prefer that developers start using GUIDs/UUIDs as record keys.

In that way, the client can generate the key (thus eliminating most of
the need for the RETURNING syntax to the INSERT statement) while still
providing support for the server to assign the value, either thru user
defined triggers or by the system itself just before the record is
written (if the value is blank).
