Just to add an explanation around this...

**IF** the 'FOR UPDATE' clause was always passed with the dynamic SQL
to the server, then there may be a performance impact - due to the way
records are packed for network transfer.

However IBO is pretty smart - to quote Jason from an earlier

- - - - -
A "live" request only imposes this if you set SearchedEdits to false
and you
are using a TIB_Cursor component. Otherwise, IBO actually suppresses
the FOR
UPDATE part of the clause when sending the statement to the server.

So it may not be wise to get used to using FOR UPDATE, since it is a
bad habit should you ever move a product without the built-in smarts
of IBO. However I often use it when writing my SQL as a simple way of
getting RequestLive set to true while writing my SQL - and it is also
convenient to provide an indication of intentions while viewing SQL
