It would be nice, that's for sure. Got to firebird's project page on SF and
look at the RFEs and add one of your own or add your comments to one that
exist for this specific thing if one does.

Frameworks having support for it already, is probably why it's not been
added yet. So many of the folks using IB/FB are using BDE or IBX or
whatever and they have field sizes and often field size checks, not to
