It is a gross violation of the architecture and intended usage of UDF's
to do this.

Can you actually accomplish it? Possibly.

Should you try? No, I would not. Among other considerations, your
solution could break without warning with any new release of Firebird.

I would try to describe the problem you are trying to solve and see if
someone here can think of a more acceptable solution.
