To hell other DBMSs. If some idiotic programmers used to
amputate tonsils though ass, is it our problem? Do we really should
comply with every perverted request? What can Firebird gain from it?
Nothing! So, why anybody should care about how it is done in other
DBMS?.. Everybody who disagree, can go to MS SQL and f...k/use it in any
way he likes to!
