it for user information - if it is you should put it in a specific user
table, if you want to extend the system metadata for a particular reason
then it becomes an overall decision for the firebird developers.
The system metadata is created by the engine, every time a new database is
created and on a restore when it is reloaded. So even if you do add the
column, you are liable to lose it at some time in the future......
