It is completely rewritten. Buffer organisation is not a linked list, the 
record pointers are hold in arrays to allow simple record accessing by 
locally builded indexes and easy recno handling. String fields are stored as 
widestrings, there are no fixed string field sizes in the record buffer. It 
has the possibility to work comparable to TClientDataset with a local change 
log and data file.
