Even Superserver, which manages its own attachment requests?

Reading about tcp wrapper (assuming that's what Rick means by
"tcp-wrapper"), it seems to do pretty much a combination of what you
can configure the Firebird server to do for itself and what you can
configure the tcp service to allow or deny.

It was a rather vague question: what do you want Firebird to do that
it's not doing already? Log requests? Control all accesses to the
server and auxiliary ports? Override keepalive? Something else?
