Amongst other things I need to print treeviews of data, possibly DXTreeView or ElPack
TreeView or something else. Also editing from within a treeview structure with FirstClass

PrintDAT! prints IP grids with extraordinary ease and does not have listed IB_ components.
Therefore I will have to connect using IBO_Database and allow arbitrary filtering on
InfoPower grids.

For non-trivial reports I'll probably use Rave. Does Rave 5 require IBO_ or will it work
with IB_ components?
