I am a wee bit troubled by this. IB7 has been out for quite a while now,
and when we exchanged emails about long metadata identifiers support
you said you were changing the internals and had ideas about changing
the whole column-thingy and a "quick fix" wasn't the way to go. This is
taking somewhat longer than expected - I myself don't really have the
tons of time to change this and I got from your emails that this would be
part of the bigger plan for columns/parameters... But the problem is that
I simply can't use long identifiers in my app with regard to running queries
in the SQL Editor :-/
