Just to add my thoughts (whatever's their worth)...

I agree with Helen. Users shouldn't play around with their server configurations and their old application should continue working. Otherwise they just shrug, say that "this new Firebird sure sucks" and uninstall it. Let me remind you that it's approx. 1% of customers who know anything database administration. In my application (designed for home users) I silently install FB and customers don't even know it's there (and they don't care). And I don't like the idea of angry phone calls when some new software installed FB 1.5 and broke my app.
