Well, I was trying to simplify things by centralizing the settings. Maybe it
was not as good an idea as it first seemed :-)

No need to wonder, lack of standards and multiple people working on the DDL
over the past 6 years is why.

Since I am changing all of the source for BDE -> IBO conversion I thought it
would be a good idea to standardize all of the Booleans in the source. Maybe
we will also straighten out the DDL after we have moved to IB6.
I find this sort of inconsistency very irritating, which is why I started
this ting in the first place.

Thanks for your thoughts.
