Firebird starts the transaction implicitly when the transaction hasn't
started. So a user that uses this new method has to manually commit or
Firebird has virtually no sql commands for maintenance or system
administration which explains why all SQL statements are running inside

Of course you can when you have all the time of the world. A method that
bypasses sql transaction control covers all cases once it is released.
Any custom connector method is trunk first and then wait for next
release to get it "production ready".

Yep. That is exactly what is happening now with the statements that
implicitly terminate transactions without sqldb knowing about it.
Firebird behavior has been elevated to TSQLConnection and it is not
working correctly for all databases.
