Subject Re: [ib-support] Feature Request for FB 2.0

Reporting a bug it's very different that requesting a new feature.

(And I remember very well your bug discussion, and you have done what I
think it is the best: discuss it first, try to have some conclusions, and
them post it)

I'm just saying that we have a Version 1 now, and I hope these will attract
much more developers to Firebird. Of course Sean could not do this just for
himself, and we are here to help. But discussing it first will give much
more details to post in the bug tracker, and I think it will be nice to all.

Just my 2 cts
