It is possible but it is beyond my scope to feasibly accomplish this. I have
considered it and even attempted prototyping it. I have made numerous
changes in the internally contained TIB_BDataset so that it could externally
reference an independent native dataset. But, as my mind traces all of the
things that can (an therefore will) go wrong and then all the work and
complexity to avoid that I nearly blow a fuse in my brain. I am very happy
with what I have so far and I am still rooting out issues here and there. To
add this on top of all I do now would do me in, I'm almost sure of it.

Perhaps it would. Maybe I need to figure out an app I could use it in and
then I would have a good reason to include it in the main directory of
sources. Perhaps someone else who needs it could polish it up and contribute
it and get free licensing.

Thanks for the thoughts, suggestions, etc. and for understanding!
