If you need to scan all records from first to last use a TIB_Cursor.
The buffered queries will keep all records in memory.
I do allow the Unidirectional property to be set to true and it will "age
off" records out of the buffer as the cursor moves along but this is
intended for just what it implies, unidirectional access. This is for
TDataset usage since I don't have the equivalent of TIB_Cursor in TDataset.
