I don't want to insist, since I'm an happy IBO user and this incompatibility problem was annoying me too.
But my thought was based upon the fact that the other "fix" of FB1 (the not table qualified columns in a join) is (maybe) THE MAIN PROBLEM, since I'm sure that all old apps using joins will be break by this new syntax check.
IF this is true, just recompiling (I had only to recomplile) or changing some hand made SQL is trivial, compared to the join problem (I had a lot of them to fix). IF I'm wrong upon this point, ok, FB has to be fixed...
But I think that the even with the fix, you will have to recompile those old apps you have forgot about...
Anyway, since FB will be fixed, I'm curious to see how many old apps will still work with it :)
