In our company we use tiOPF with the SqlDB components as our persistence
layer, and our commercial apps do data access via multiple threads without
problems (specially now that I fixed some of the Thread.WaitFor problems in
FPC+tiOPF+Linux). An example usage: While the user sits at the login prompt
of our application, our app loads up some commonly used lookup list data in
a separate thread. Reporting queries also gets done in a separate thread.

We primarily talk to a Firebird RDBMS, but I have tested PostgreSQL for a
short while too, to see if that DB works.
