So, does GeneratorLinks work with the trigger, or replace the
trigger? My real question, is if I use GeneratorLinks on a table
that has the trigger firing, will I end up with the values
or the values 2,4,6,8,10... or 1,3,5,7,9...

I really want the values 1,2,3,4,5 and I want the trigger to fire,
because if I add a record using another environment like Perl, then I
want those records to interleave the records added from IBO. So I
can end up with this:

1,2,3 added via IBO (3 records added)
4 added via Perl (1 record added)
5,6 added via IBO (2 records added)
7,8,9 added via Perl (3 records added)
(ad nausium)
