Is execute block intended to work in a script? What would be a
point without some script-based processing controls?

I am not entirely clear on the utility of execute block at this
stage, although I am sure it has some. Temporary/undeclared
stored procedures I guess is the intended purpose.

How easy or difficult will largely depend on how this is all
handled by the API. Have you tried it in a TIB_Cursor or
TIB_DSQL just to see what happens?

Not holding grudges are we :-)
