Following on from my previous TMemDataset.Filename issue. With 
TBufDataset, there is no property editor associated with the FileName 
property. Is this just an oversight or done for a specific reason?

An the same issue as with TMemDataset.Filename. Clearly it expects a 
specific file format denoted with a specific file extension. I selected 
one of Kylix 3's *.cds files...


and when I set Active = True, the TBufDataset gave an "unable to open 
file" error - I assume what it really meant is that it doesn't know the 
file stream format.
