The more I think the more I think we should scratch it. I see no use
whatsoever even for backward compatibility. When would anyone want to
focus a FielddataLink 's control and not know the control already? in
which case they could call it before hand. I am going to not even bother
with this routine for now unless someone knows a convincing reason for
this kinda thing..

But anyway. I think I have it done. I made an initial TDBText control to
test because it only has read and was easier and quicker to implement
it. So read apears to work, but I am assuming it works everywhere else(
and if not I put a comment including the delphi help above each routine
as relevent so people at least can understand why I did what and can fix
if they know better). So attached is da beast with a small example,
including a basic texttable and the mlb units it uses for those who wish
to test it.  Actually its quite small(not counting mlb stuff), I
expected to have to do a lot more. which is maybe why I am wary about
how well it really works inspie of my initial tests :D

Please test!
