Subject: [IBO] Get server default at connection level for domains

> I use to set "getserverdefault" to true to all my IB_Query, and I think
this is a GREAT feature IBO provides for a lot of reasons.
> But, as long as I've understood, IBO correctly gets the default values for
the columns at each prepare of the query.
> Since, and I think many of us are doing so, I've domains defined for every
kind of field of my database, it would be very performance friendly (and
appropriate) have the defaults for the domains fetched at connection level
(if FieldEntryTypes.fetDomainName is true, or depending upon one more
property). This way, if I know that the dataset will not have columns with
default set at column level, I can turn the GetServerDefault to false, with
performance and network traffic benefits.
