This will only work until Firebird needs to extend the database file
and then all kinds of bad things might happen.

I would rather store this information in a separate configuration file.
Or, if you are a big fan of abusing file formats, you might want to
try to append the information to your executable file. The last time I
tried this (years ago on Windows), it worked without problems.
