So? Drop security.fdb into app dir (where the fbembeded.dll is) and
youre done. Actually, right now embedded checks for username so it
must read it from some system table in db. Now embeded could update
just those system tables and skip the security database stuff.

Rolling my own users table isn't solving the problem as FB's login API
doesn't check it. If you mean that I should behind the scenes log in
with "generic user" and then ask users to enter username/password
which I check against "private users table" then this is kind of like
reinventing the wheel...

The point is that the embeded and remote server should behave the same
so that developer don't have to distinguish between them.
