Some times I do. Other times I just use the mechanisms in IBO. One can
be lazy, _and_ eat the cake, too!
I often need the generated value for some purpose, so I use IBO's
'GEN_ID' function. Otherwise IBO's 'GeneratorLinks' is useful.
I realize that this isn't availble to all, but even so I would put this
suggestion (the AutoInc thing) low on the priorities list.
