I agree. Despite the manipulations that IB may do with these fields
on the server, I thought the intention was always that CHAR fields
were supposed to be fixed length, while VARCHAR was varying. So if
practical I would prefer to see...

VARCHAR default to right trimming.
CHAR default to no trimming.

Either field should be able to be changed via the FieldsTrimming

IMHO :-)
