However you look at it. Some things are a real shame to embrace them. I just
don't understand why TEdit, TDBEdit, TXXXEdit... (but maybe is that just me) and
so on. Borland has just made Datalinks one step too late. Wouldn't it be easier
if one component could be data-aware, simple or anything aware. Not needing to
change component if you'd need a little different purpose. 
Stupid component hierarchy is the main reason why all of my friends that used
Btrieve can't change to anything other than that (or they ever will, but believe
me they would like).

plus if you need a DB equivalent you would probably need just a name compatibility.

  TDBEdit = class(TEdit);

I'll try to make equiv.
