I must say that I agree with the leading post. Whatever can be done to ensure nothing goes wrong should be. A "half-baked" solution that leaves *easily* avoidable problems is an extremely DANGEROUS and unnecessary risk to take. All possible effort possible should be expended to avoid the risk because, at this time, Firebird and Mozilla are both running entirely on their reputations. ONE catastrophe, especially one that the developer could have better assisted the user to avoid, can potentially cause irreparable damage or setback a great deal of accumulated goodwill.

Please, do not take chances with your reputation. I am an example of a user for whom reputation is an important factor in decision making. Bad repuation --> avoidance. Consider yourself warned and counseled.
