Let us not re-invent the wheel here. Borland's TClientDataSet does this
kind of thing nicely. Only I have found it does not work properly with a
provider connected to TIBO_Query (see my post some time ago about a SOAP
server - I forget the details but ended up using all Borland for that
project). I would put in my vote for keeping the TDataset descendents up
so they work with OEM components.
