Performance might be bad when querying stuff like 'tables' and
lists of other meta data objects.

Try InterBase Workbench - it caches lots of info, and when
you're the only one working on that database, it doesn't
matter anyway. This will speed up editing metadata a lot!

I have customers who administer their InterBase databases
via 36.6K dialup lines - of course, not lighting fast, but
a lot faster than other tools :)

I've done it myself also -- works like a charm.
