So - do we take it that you are offering to update the QSG? Contrary to
popular belief, there is no legion of elves up at the North Pole
frantically working 24/7 to keep up with demand for documentation. (It
would be nice, though....)

Here follows an overt Plug ---

In this community, documentation is written and updated by people like you
- those who know enough about Firebird to know when something is out of
date, who care enough to do something about it and who are willing and able
to spend the time. They are astonishingly few in number and by no means
available 24/7 (or even 12/12!)
