No IBO app is BDE-dependent (it's a contradiction in terms!!)

If you are writing an app that is to be deployed to a client machine that doesn't have the BDE installed, or that doesn't have an alias definition for your database connection, DON'T set the Aliasname property. SIMPLE. PRETEND IT'S NOT THERE.

Using the Aliasname property is an appogiatura. It doesn't require or cause any non-IBO units to be added to your project.
