If you are looking for a full-featured replication solution, then you
should have a look on IBReplicator
(also with some interesting infos about internals, if you really want
to develop your own replication mechanism).

which was solved pretty fast. Jason always stated, that he will support
IB LogManager 2.0 - The Logging Tool for Interbase/Firebird
