Yes you are right, that is exactly what I was remembering. I don't
really want to think about all the places that TIDs are referenced,
let alone the client libraries etc that will need to be changed to
reference something larger. Kapsee, my understanding is that the FB 2
feature list is pretty much locked, so you will have to wait for FB 3
at least before something which brings with it a major ODS change.
