The important part is *AFTER* confirmation. You're again jumping ahead
of events.
Unless 2015 is proven to work there's no point dropping support for 2013.

that whole FireDB situation sucks, and I'd rather  bundle hsqldb with
every odb file.

If firedb cannot be built, then we should not ship it.
I'd rather update hsqldb, even if it is the evil, evil java and have
two versions of hsqldb than shipping a "prebuilt" or whatever version
of firedb.

But again: you're jumping from conclusions, see Lionel's mails..
