I think you are probably thinking of the row slots per table here. Worth
asking on firebird-devel about the TID limit, though. It's not likely to
be as simple a change as you would suppose at a glance. TIDs are stored
all over the system in 4-byte structures. Changing it to 5 or 8 bytes
would be a pretty hefty ODS change so, if it's not already done for Fb 2,
it's not going to be.
