not strictly true - the requirement is that "no two threads should use
a connection at the same time". The two might look similar, but
they're not the same thing - the latter allows connection pooling.

H> Is this true for firebird 1.5 too?

to the best of my knowledge, nothing changed. But attaching a Firebird
database has become such a cheap operation compared f. ex. to Oracle
that I personally don't feel the need to save connections.
