Hello Terrence,

Given the facts that:

- Firebird is now a no more experimental feature in LO

- the number of bugs concerning Firebird in LO bugtrackers

- the lack of Base resources in LO

- the number of LO patches to build Firebird (+ you must take into 
account the different platforms)

- the 4.0 version of Firebird is still beta or even if we wait for the 
stable release, would still be the first one

- the slow rythm of releases in Firebird

I'd prefer sticking to 3.0.X branch of Firebird for the moment.

Of course, it's just my opinion and if someone would bump to 4.0, I 
won't be against it.
