It would be interesting to explain the concept of an IB_Session "owning"
all of the objects in its domain. Coming from the IBX environment (which
lacks this style of isolation capability for threaded connection instances)
Tony might perhaps be struggling with the notion of how IBO manages to have
recycled db handles that are intrinsically clean...

I'd like to grab your explication of this for the FAQ and to beef up the
help text for TIB_Session.
