Looks like you missed the point. I'm talking about one template which
I'd have to "maintain". And wow, I can see big maintenance clouds
gathering on the horizon. :-)

I admit auto_increment in MySQL or IDENTITY in MSSQL are easier. Let's
say both ways have their pros and cons.

Höhö. Oracle auto_increment. Google it. :-)

I'm currently toying around with 10g XE. Without knowing much about it
I'm convinced it's a great system. I have yet to discover, in Oracle,
the ease of use that you seem to be missing in Firebird, though. And
it has not yet occurred to me blame Oracle because I need more than a
couple days to understand it.
