[fpc-devel] TMysqlDataset and TIBDataset obsolete?

Hi all,

the sqldb components are based on the TMySQLDataset (MySQL) and
TIBDataset (Interbase) components.

Afaik all functionality of the mysql and interbase units is also
available in the sqldb unit, but the sqldb unit supports more
(updateable) and is better maintained.

But for users that could be confusing. They could think that the DB-
support for those databases is not good enough (yet), while the
functionality they need is supported by sqldb.

Is it possible and do you guys think it's smart to mark the interbase
and mysql units as obsolete in version 2.0.0? I think that removing them
is a step too far, although the release of 2.0.0 is maybe the best time
to do it...

What do you think?

Met vriendelijke groeten,
