/Reposted with correct branch identifier/.

I thought that a fixes branch was only for bug fixes and not for issuing 
non-backwards compatible changes. However, TFieldType in db.pas now has 
6 extra elements.

The result is that IBX no longer compiles with the fixes_3_2 branch. I 
have also heard the same for zeoslib.

Is the rollout of this patch to fixes_3_2 a mistake, or is there a good 
reason for rolling out a change that breaks other packages?
